"Having held a CFO position at the U.K. company for 12 years and highly respected within UNIVERSAL and throughout the industry, GEOFF is eminently qualified to be our CFO. On behalf of everyone at CMG, I welcome him to the company, and extend our best wishes and appreciation to his family for making the move to HOLLYWOOD.”

“Having been with UNIVERSAL MUSIC for many years, the opportunity to join STEVE and his team in shaping CMG’s future is one that excites me, both professionally and personally," HARRIS said, I thank STEVE and BOYD for welcoming me to the U.S. and I’m thrilled to get started.”
