Last September, it emerged that Warner/Chappell’s boss Jon Platt was leaving the company, and shortly afterwards it was confirmed that he would be the successor to Martin Bandier as boss of Sony/ATV.
Now there’s a move coming the other way, with Warner/Chappell announcing that Guy Moot, formerly president of worldwide creative at Sony/ATV, will be its new co-chairman and CEO. He’ll be joined by Carianne Marshall, the current COO of Warner/Chappell, who’s being promoted to co-chairman and COO.
Billboard reported that Moot is expected to join the company in the first half of the year, with Marshall already leading the transition process. “Guy and Carianne are inspiring, innovative execs who have championed many of the world’s greatest songwriters, while being passionate advocates for the value of music and proponents of new technology,” said Warner Music Group chief Stephen Cooper.
