The Omnian Music Group has hired Jane Abernethy, former Director Of A&R at 4AD, as its new Managing Director.

If you are wondering what the Omnian Music Group is, well, it owns record labels Captured Tracks, 2MR, Sinderlyn and Manufactured Recordings. It also has a partnership with legendary New Zealand label Flying Nun, and co-owns the No Other Music publishing company with artist management firm We Are Free. Busy busy.

“Jane was always number one on my radar in terms of someone who I really wanted to work with”, says OMG CEO Mike Sniper. “Through participating with her on music conference panels and listening to her opinions on the industry and music in general made me realise what a powerhouse she is and how much she can do for our company. Her intelligence, ingenuity and experience will help us rise to the next level and we look forward to learning a lot working with her”.

As well as hiring Abernethy, OMG has also made a number of promotions. Pamela Garavano Coolbaugh is now Label Manager at Captured Tracks and, for the group as a whole, Dave Martin is now Head Of Physical and Matt Brinkworth is Head Of Digital.
