SONY/ATV MUSIC PUBLISHING has appointed RICK KRIM as Co-Pres./U.S., a role in which he will lead the company’s A&R operations in LOS ANGELES. Most recently EVP/Artist Development at REPUBLIC RECORDS, KRIM will look after SONY/ATV’s U.S. A&R activities alongside Co-Pres./U.S. DANNY STRICK, who is based in the company’s NEW YORK office.
“RICK is a true music industry professional with deep relationships with the best artists, talent managers and industry executives,” Chairman/CEO MARTIN BANDIER said. “He truly knows songwriters and will be a great asset to an already strong team. Given his time at MTV and VH1, he will also bring to us a number of additional skills to complement his immense A&R capabilities.”
“I cannot wait to get started in this role as I am not only returning to music publishing, but will be reunited with MARTY BANDIER who I learned so much from during my time at EMI,” KRIM said. "It is so exciting and such an honor after all these years to get a chance to work with him again, especially at a company as dynamic as SONY/ATV that is blessed with so many great songwriters and artists. I am also looking forward to working with DANNY and the rest of the SONY/ATV team.”
