[PIAS] relaunches distribution business as [Integral]

By | Published on Monday 29 March 2021


Independent music group [PIAS] has rebranded its distribution division under the [Integral] brand. It will be headed up by Adrian Pope and Leo Van Schaick who are getting expanded roles at the company.

Felicia Flack is also joining the firm to become Head Of Label And Artist Services, a globally-focused role that will see her working closely with [Integral] teams in different markets.

In the UK, [Integral] will continue to be led by Richard Sefton, who will report into [PIAS] UK MD Jason Rackham, who will – in turn – oversee both the rebranded distribution division and the [PIAS] labels business in the British market. The latter will also include the Cooperative Music network of label partnerships that [PIAS] operates.

Confirming all of this, [PIAS] Group CEO Kenny Gates says: “I am incredibly proud of the launch of [Integral], marking the next step in our evolution. Through four decades, [PIAS] has adapted to every market change but by always keeping its unrivalled love for music, its soul and its authentic commitment to the independent sector and its artists”.

Meanwhile, Adrian Pope – who will continue in his role as Chief Digital Officer for the wider [PIAS] Group as well as being MD of [Integral] – adds: “The launch of [Integral] reaffirms our commitment to providing a world class distribution and services offering to our label, artist and retail partners. By establishing a distinct identity for our highly successful services division, we have brought clarity to our mission, and will continue to demonstrate the passion, creativity and value we strive to deliver to our repertoire partners and our customers”.
