BMG UK top execs promoted

By | Published on Monday 16 December 2013


BMG has promoted two senior execs within its UK division, with Alexi Cory-Smith becoming Exec Vice President of BMG Chrysalis UK and Mark Ranyard Exec Vice President and CFO. It’s not a massive overhaul, but will result in a slight rejig of executive responsibilities, and will see the UK chiefs ranking higher on a global level.

Following the promotions, which come into effect on 1 Jan, Cory-Smith will oversee all “outward-facing” functions at the music rights company’s UK division, including A&R, business affairs, marketing and sync, while Raynard will oversee income tracking and royalty audits as well as copyright, royalty and contract admin.

Confirming all this, BMG top man Hartwig Masuch told CMU: “These promotions are a well-deserved recognition of the success of BMG’s UK operation, a cornerstone of our worldwide business. They reflect our commitment to developing our executive talent”.
