SONY/ATV MUSIC PUBLISHING has promoted GUY MOOT to Pres./Worldwide Creative, giving him an A&R presence across the global music market. The newly-created position is effective immediately and is in addition to his existing role of U.K. Managing Director. It succeeds his previous dual role of Pres./European Creative and extends his responsibilities to the U.S. He will continue to report to Chairman/CEO MARTIN BANDIER.
BANDIER said, “GUY MOOT is someone I have had the pleasure of working with for many years and he stands out as one of the genuine A&R executive superstars of the worldwide music industry. His creative leadership for SONY/ATV in the U.K. and EUROPE has been exceptional and I am excited that he will now get a chance to fully utilize his creative talents in the U.S.”
MOOT said, “Since living in NEW YORK in the ‘90s I’ve always maintained a close working relationship with the U.S. and am looking forward to spending even more time there. For me this new role perfectly mirrors the industry in 2017 when many songwriters are traveling the world to collaborate with writers in other markets and a hit song can now emerge from absolutely anywhere. It means the modern A&R executive has to stay on top of a variety of markets and connect people from different territories.”
