On the heels of reports that BMG wants to cash out of its part of the SONY BMG joint venture, which expires next AUGUST, SONY BMG Pres./Continental Europe MAARTEN STEINKAMP is leaving his post amidst conflicting reports on whether he will totally leave the company.
While some sources indicate that STEINKAMP will exitthe conglomerate, British trade MUSICWEEK described such reports as "inaccurate." A former journalist who joined BMG in 1988, STEINKAMP has held a bevy of international posts, including the head of BMG International in NEW YORK before the joint venture began in 2004.
