MUMBAI: Warner Bros. Records has appointed Todd Moscowitz as executive vice president. Moscowitz currently serves as WMG’s Independent Label Group (ILG) CEO, which includes the Asylum and East West labels.
In his new role as EVP of Warner Bros. Records, Moscowitz will bring Asylum to the Warner Bros. family of labels, reporting to Warner Bros. chairman and CEO Tom Whalley. Moscowitz will continue to serve as CEO of the remainder of ILG, reporting to John Esposito, WEA Corp.’s president and CEO.
Moscowitz will oversee the expansion of the label’s urban roster. With Asylum as part of the Warner Bros. Records family of labels, Asylum’s developing artists will be able to draw upon the proven marketing and promotional expertise of the Warner Bros. team. At the same time, Asylum will serve a valuable A&R and artist development resource for Warner Bros. as it increases Warner Bros.’ presence in urban music.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to work even more closely with Tom and his team and to provide Asylum artists the unparalleled resources of Warner Bros. Records. It’s an honor to be a part of a label so deeply-rooted in the history and culture of our business,” says Moscowitz.
“Todd’s success in urban music and his commitment to artist development make him the perfect partner for Warner Bros. Records. As the music business continues to evolve, executives such as Todd, who appreciate the importance of great artists and understand the complexities of the business, will shape the future of our industry. I am thrilled that Todd will be leading the way with me at Warner Bros. Records,” says Whalley.
