Having worked with Tim at Sony, I’m looking forward to drawing on his formidable experience and unrivalled understanding of the catalogue business. He combines extremely strong operational skills with real creative vision and appetite for innovation, all of which will be utilised as we continue to grow and develop our catalogue assets at both a global and local level”.
Fraser-Harding himself added: “I’m delighted to be joining Warner Music Group, where, thanks to Kevin and the teams in each market, catalogue is such a vital, dynamic and ever-evolving part of the business. To work with Warner Music’s world-class catalogue repertoire and a global network committed to finding new and exciting ways to bring it to fans is a fantastic opportunity and one I look forward to embracing”.
