The beginning of the New Year evokes many new resolutions and changes across the world, and the same is true of the rapidly changing and evolving global music business. The German market in particular (the world’s 4th largest music territory) has seen its fair share of changes in the past few months with a number of global acquisitions and partnerships announced by BMG, executive changes and hires at Sony and Warner Music Germany, as well as a significant change of tide (staffing-wise) at the Berlin-based headquarters of Universal Music Germany.

These changes were compounded by the growth of independent music publisher, Budde Music, who last year launched their first office in the U.S. in Los Angeles, led by successful British producer/songwriter and A&R executive, Felix Howard. Former BMG Germany MD, Maik Pallasch, as announced first in this newsletter, has taken on the role of Head of Germany, Shows & Editorial/Content & Creator for Spotify and A&R Worldwide has also learned of significant changes forthcoming at Imagem Music GmbH, as well as a slew of other activity in the Deutschland music market.

On the Universal front, over the past few months numerous staff have left the label, most notably Daniel Lieberberg who had been with the company since 2002 and, at the time of his departure last October, was Head of Universal Music Domestic’s Vertigo, Capitol (VEC) and Polydor, Island (PIL) labels. Lieberberg is said to be taking on a high-profile and influential role at Sony Europe in the very near future. Other recent departures at Universal Music Group Germany include Patrick Mushatsi-Kareba (General Manager; Marketing & Digital; Universal Music Germany); Jonas Weber (Director Strategic Development; Universal Music Germany); Fiete Klatt (Head of A&R; Vertigo/Capitol); Matthias Henning (VP, International Marketing); Alexander Kralisch (Sr. A&R Manager Polydor/Island Records); Anni Barsoe (A&R Manager Vertigo/Capitol); and Sigi Schuller (Director A&R, Polydor/Island/Vertigo/Capitol) who left Universal last September to become VP of Columbia Records GSA. In addition, various staffers from marketing and digital have also left the company. According to various sources, many of the executives have left the company as a response to the recently announced structural changes at the major.

Frank Briegmann, President & CEO of Central Europe & Deutsche Grammophon at Universal Music Group announced late last year that the company had decided to turn its specialized departments into business units, which would enable its staff to think and act like entrepreneurs.

Dirk Baur who was the Managing Director of the International Division was recently announced as President, Marketing Labs. Marketing Labs is poised to pool key digital activities and business intelligence to create new digital platforms. According to Universal Germany, Marketing Labs will create a single point of contact for print/online promotion, media agency, creative agency, digital partnerships and business intel, as well as consumer development.

In addition, all of Universal Germany’s domestic repertoire staff now reports to Tom Bohne who was promoted to President of Domestic Labels late last year. Also, UMG’s catalog department will be incorporated into its national and international divisions.

Additionally, Frank Hohenb÷ken takes the helm as Managing Director Sales GSA, where he will continue to oversee all sales activities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and specialize in serving the physical business within the music and merchandising market. Philipp Zwez was named Managing Director of Music & Brands & Business Development of the Music & Brands division.


Ron Perry
As expected, Ron Perry has officially been announced as Chairman and CEO of Columbia Records, previously led by Rob Stringer before he assumed his current role leading Sony Music in the U.S. Perry, who started his new position today, will be based in New York while reporting to Stringer and will lead overall management of Columbia. Perry, at 38 years old, also currently sits as the youngest executive leading a major label until Aaron Bay-Schuck assumes his Co-chairman and CEO role at Warner Bros. Records later this year.

"Ron is an immensely dynamic and forward thinking executive who excels at bringing the best out of artistic vision," Stringer said in a statement. "After his enormous success in recent years, we are thrilled to have Ron join Sony Music and lead the great team and unparalleled roster at the legendary Columbia Records label."

Perry had most recently been President at Songs Music Publishing, recently acquired by Kobalt Capital, in addition to being a large minority partner since its 2004 launch. While at Songs, Perry’s credits included signing Lorde, The Weeknd, Major Lazer and Diplo, as well as A&R-ing Lorde's Grammy-nominated Melodrama and putting together The Weeknd and Daft Punk on “Starboy” and “I Feel It Coming.”

“I want to thank Rob for the extraordinary opportunity to run the premier label in the history of music," Perry said in a statement. "To embark as the curator of this storied company is both the highest and most humbling career achievement I could imagine. Columbia Records has stood the test of time as the industry's marquee home for the world's greatest stars. Rob has handed off an extremely talented team at Columbia. I look forward to building on his successes, while developing culturally innovative new artists and extending Columbia's unprecedented run at the top into the future.”


Jim Roppo
Republic Records has announced the promotion of Jim Roppo to Executive Vice President and General Manager, it was announced last week by Founder and Chairman, Monte Lipman. In the new role, Roppo will oversee label operations for Republic and its various partners.

Lipman comments, “Jim has served as key architect for many campaigns over the years that not only yielded tremendous results, but also made an impact on pop culture. His drive, determination, and competitive spirit are intoxicating. In his new role, Jim will have even more latitude to help steer the company into uncharted waters. I’m thrilled about this announcement.”

“Republic has a world-class roster and team,” adds Roppo. “The leadership is incredible. Charlie Walk is a creative force of nature. Avery Lipman operates with unmatched finesse and foresight. Monte is the ultimate coach, pushing you to not only meet your potential, but exceed it. A company hallmark is its focus on breaking new artists. That’s what inspires me the most. My passion for the business centers around the idea of turning other people on to great music. Republic gives me the opportunity to do just that.”

A 20-year veteran of Universal Music Group, Roppo has been with Republic since 2012, most recently as EVP, Marketing & Commerce. At Republic, he’s been at the forefront of campaigns for acts such as Drake, The Weeknd, Ariana Grande, Post Malone, James Bay and most recently, Grammy nominee Julia Michaels, as well as others.

Calder and Oldham also formed Immediate Records, signing a number of successful acts such as the Small Faces, Rod Stewart, PP Arnold, Nico (pre-Velvet Underground) and Fleetwood Mac.
