WARNER BROS. RECORDS Co-Pres./COO LIVIA TORTELLA will leave the company six months after the WBR Co-Pres./CEO TODD MOSCOWITZ exited, VARIETY reports. No replacement for either TORTELLA or MOSCOWITZ has yet been announced, as WARNER/CHAPPELL MUSIC Chairman/CEO CAMERON STRANG was promoted to head of West Coast Operations, and WBR Chairman ROB CAVALLO stays on.
STRANG will now have increased executive clout at WMG, on top of oversight of WMG's publishing and catalog division. The changes come after ACCESS INDUSTRIES acquired WMG and brought in STEPHEN COOPER to succeed LYOR COHEN as WMG CEO and CAVALLO to succeed TOM WHALLEY as WBR Chairman/CEO.
