Artist manager Scott Maclachlan has been appointed SVP A&R for Warner Music Australaisia. Maclachlan is the founder of Saiko Managament, based in Auckland, New Zealand, which is best known for working with Lorde in the early part of her career.

“I’m stoked to be joining the team at Warner Music Australasia”, says Maclachlan. “The global streaming-driven music market creates amazing opportunities to break great artists from Australia and New Zealand around the world and that’s something I’m committed to doing over the coming years”.

Warner Music Australaisia President Niko Nordström adds: “Scott’s a legend in the music industry and he brings local knowledge and global experience to this pivotal role. He has a true affinity with artists and always puts their needs first. That’s how he’s been able to generate such amazing results over the years. We’re delighted that he’s joined the Warner Music team”.

Originally from the UK, Maclachlan relocated to New Zealand in 2008, working in A&R for Universal for five years, before leaving to focus on Saiko full time in 2013. He will continue to have an advisory role at Saiko Management while he takes up his new position at Warner.
