Independent distribution firm The Orchard has announced the appointment of a new GM for the UK and Europe to be based at the firm’s London offices.

Naomi Moran joins The Orchard from World Circuit, having previously also worked for Rykomusic and collecting society MCPS. She will oversee all sales, marketing and distribution efforts in Europe, reporting in to Colleen Theis, who previously led The Orchard’s European business, but is now COO for the company at large based in New York.

Confirming the new appointment, Orchard boss Brad Navin told CMU: “Naomi has been an innovator and leader in her previous roles within the industry and we are proud to have her join our team. As a veteran of the European music industry, she will help drive our established teams abroad and complement our existing presence in the EU and UK”.
