News Update: UMG Ups Marks, Apple Cloud Needs Publishers, TuneCore Adds EVP, Ditto Music To US
(UPDATED) As expected, UMG promoted Amanda Marks to Global Head of Digital Accounts reporting to Rob Wells, President of Global Digital. Marks had been EVP & GM of Universal Music Distribution.
Apple may be close to signing UMG, it's last major, but it has no deals with music publishers, according to AllThingsDigital making a rumored early June launch less likely. And then there's deals with indie labels.
Digital music distributor TuneCore has named Malcolm Gillian as EVP of Brand & Business Development. Malcolm SVP of Branded Entertainment at marketing agency Relevent Partners and VP of Marketing at Track Entertainment.
Ditto Music, the UK's largest digital music distribution and label services company has launched a US office on Music Row in Nashville.
