BMG has appointed PETER STACK as EVP/Global Catalog Recordings. STACK will be responsible for the marketing and exploitation of the company’s growing recording catalogs worldwide. The move comes just seven months after BMG acquired the company STACK founded, UNION SQUARE MUSIC, EUROPE’s leading reissues and catalog specialist.
Reporting to CEO HARTWIG MASUCH and based in LONDON, STACK will be responsible for targeting further catalog acquisitions and licences, as well as running the catalog business across BMG’s international network.
MASUCH said, “Catalog artists have not always been given the respect they deserve by the record business. That’s why it has always been a key strategic priority for BMG to develop a world-class catalogue operation bringing together our strengths in sync and licensing and all forms of physical and digital exploitation. Already we have built strong strategic positions in the rock and dance genres. With many prized recordings now reverting to artists, PETER will not only be a great ambassador for BMG, he will help us further build our service offering.”
STACK said, “BMG’s ability to combine ambition and scale with a real respect for artists is unique. Artists whose work has proven itself over time deserve a world-class service and we are determined to give it to them.”
