Quantcast
IE client Robbie Williams
STAFF SHAKE-UP AT IE:MUSIC

Dan Medland and Michael Loney have been appointed joint-MDs of U.K. management company ie:music, that reps Robbie Williams, Will Young, Passenger and Lily Allen. The promotions follow the death of co-founder David Enthoven in August.

The man who founded ie:music alongside Enthoven in ’92, Tim Clark, will now assume the role of Chairman.

Medland has been with ie:music for 13 years and oversees the career of Passenger, who last week enjoyed a #1 album in the U.K., Australia and New Zealand, alongside Ladyhawke and Gin Wigmore. He is based in Australia, where he runs ie:east, a wholly owned subsidiary of ie:music.

Loney has been with the company for 14 years, joining in ’02 to help run the campaign for Williams’ hugely successful album, Escapology. He still looks after Williams and is currently working on the launch campaign for his 11th album, The Heavy Entertainment Show (Columbia).

Elsewhere, Digital Manager Benjamin Wells has been appointed MD of www.robbiewilliams.com. And there’s a new hire too: Stephen O’Reilly has joined as Head of Marketing.

Said Clark: “Following the passing in August of our co-founder, David Enthoven, it was important to re-shape the company to ensure we continued to offer the best possible service to the artists we represent. 

“I was fortunate to be able to discuss these decisions with David just before he died. I am delighted that these were joint decisions by my partner and myself and he was so happy that he was able to decide them with me. He was as proud as I am of the fantastic team of people we have at ie:music."
