“I know as well as anyone how vital our business affairs function is and I’m proud to see so much progression within the team. Andrew is an exceptional lawyer and more than ready to take a leading role within the company,” shares Major. Spence adds, “I’m grateful to both Tim Major and David Ventura for giving me this opportunity. It’s an exciting time to be at Sony/ATV and I’m very much looking forward to the future.”
