Sony/ATV boss Martin Bandier to step down in March 2019


We wondered yesterday what reports that Jon Platt’s departure from music-publisher Warner/Chappell was setting him up for a senior role at rival Sony/ATV meant for the latter’s current boss Martin Bandier. The pieces quickly fell in to place last night, as Bandier announced plans to step down from his role at the end of his contract, in March 2019. “I would also like to thank Sony for giving me the opportunity to lead this company through the music industry’s complex and ever-changing landscape, and at a time when representing the rights of songwriters has never been more important and necessary,” wrote Bandier in a memo to staff, in which he hinted that he won’t be slipping into retirement just yet. “I look forward to sharing what’s ahead for me with you soon, and I’ll be following all of your successes long after I have left.”
