Universal announce staffing changes
17th February 2013
Universal Music NZ has unveiled a number of in-house staffing changes to their promotions team as the label and EMI Music combines into a single business.
In an official statement, Universal Promotions Director Justin Warren said:
"As part of a global effort to re-energise the EMI brand, Universal is establishing dual promotional arms, with all Universal and EMI repertoire split evenly between Matt Kidd as Head of Universal Promotions, and newly promoted Matt Offord as Head of Capitol EMI Promotions. Each Matt becomes the key contact for all radio, press, TV, and online media for their relevant repertoire streams."
The news comes in wake of Universal Music Group’s US$1.9 billion acquisition of the British record label last September.
