Warner Music has recently changed several senior executives, leaving many people perplexed as to why.
When asked about the strategy, Warner's Simon Robson said:
"In an environment where the music business is both more globalised than ever and hyper-localised at the same time, our international leadership team positions us brilliantly for our next phase of growth. And we're super excited about the new executives we've brought in and promoted. One of Warner Music's strengths is how we look at artists' careers as global from day one, and with our network of expertise around the world we deliver maximum impact for talent."
"These individual leadership changes in our different territories have each been based on unique circumstances. And each of the leaders who have left, or are leaving, do so with our immense gratitude for their amazing contributions over many years. They all care deeply about their teams and our artists and they've partnered with their successors to make the transitions go smoothly."
