New MD for Universal’s telly-and-movie music unit

Globe: Soundtrack & Score, the Universal Music division set up a year ago to “maximise the artistic and commercial impact of music in film and TV”, has a brand new Managing Director in the form of Ross Sellwood.

Sellwood has previously worked on the other side of that equation, in the TV business as a music supervisor, most recently at Banijay Media, and before that at companies like RDF Media Group and the BBC.

The boss of Universal Music UK’s Globe business, that’ll be Marc Robinson, reckons the hiring of Sellwood “will consolidate our aim of reimagining of how film and TV music is created”. Which sounds like fun.

“Globe: Soundtrack & Score is already proving the benefits of being part of the creative process at the earliest stages of soundtracks”, Robinson added, “helping to shape and fund budgets and then being the team that takes the music through to recording, release, marketing and distribution”.

What does Sellwood think about his new job? Well, he’s been tight-lipped about it all, but I am going to go out on a limb here and propose he might be “THRILLED”.
