GLEN BRUNMAN, longtime head of SONY MUSIC's soundtrack unit, has been named EVP/Head Of Creative at WARNER MUSIC GROUP's publishing company, WARNER/CHAPPELL MUSIC. BRUNMAN will oversee all of WARNER/CHAPPELL's A&R, creative and music synchronization efforts in the U.S. He will focus on expanding the current artist roster and identifying new opportunities for WARNER/CHAPPELL's library across a range of traditional and emerging platforms, including online and mobile.
"It's a privilege to be joining the talented team at WARNER/CHAPPELL MUSIC at this transformative time in the music industry. The chance to work with an amazing roster and deep catalog to further unlock their artistic and financial value will be an exciting challenge. And the opportunity to find and develop new songwriters, as well as new ways of bringing music to an increasingly passionate audience, will be equally important and gratifying."
BRUNMAN founded EPIC SOUNDTRAX in 1992 and served as its Sr. VP until 1996, when he was put in charge of soundtracks for all of the SONY labels as EVP of the newly created SONY MUSIC SOUNDTRAX. He was most recently President of the division.
