The executive chairs are whirling in the US this week, with three new job moves from prominent industry figures.
Sony/ATV Nashville’s president and CEO Troy Tomlinson is on the move to Universal Music Publishing Group Nashville, for example: he’ll be its first chairman and CEO, reporting to the company’s overall boss Jody Gerson. “Troy’s track record in Nashville is the stuff of legend,” she said in a statement. Music Ally readers may remember Tomlinson’s contribution to our report on country music and streaming last year.
Also big news: Interscope’s CFO and EVP business development Jeremy Erlich is joining Spotify as head of music strategy, reporting to global head of music Nick Holmsten. “I’ll be responsible for the North American Editorial & Global Curation Strategy teams, as well as the Music team’s strategy and operations, and work to further strengthen Spotify’s relationships in the creative community,” he wrote on Instagram.
Finally, Vevo’s VP of business development Brooke Eplee is moving to collecting society ASCAP, where she’ll be SVP of strategy and business development, reporting to EVP and chief strategy and digital officer Nicholas Lehman.
