Warner Music has reportedly nabbed Sony Music’s Ole Obermann to become its new EVP of Business Development.
Currently London-based Obermann, Sony’s EVP Of Digital Partner Development & Sales, will move to New York to secure his snappier job title at the mini-major. He will report into Warner Music CEO Stephen Cooper in the new role, and will seemingly take over business development duties from the firm’s Executive Counsel Ron Wilcox, who has been doing such things on an interim basis in addition to all his legal gubbins.
Obermann joined Sony Music in 2006, moving into the digital team in 2013. The new job hasn’t been confirmed by either Sony or Warner as yet.
