UMG NASHVILLE SETS NEW TEAM
Dungan Names Becci, Wright, Mabe, Risser to Expanded Posts
The new post-EMI era of UMG Nashville is underway under Chairman/CEO Mike Dungan, who named his new senior management team for the label group which encompasses Mercury Nashville, Capitol Records Nashville, MCA Records and EMI Records Nashville. He assumes control of the label group he left to assume his current post at UMG in February.

Each of the following new appointments will report directly to Dungan and be based in UMG’s downtown Nashville headquarters: 

*Former Capitol Records SVP/COO Tom Becci will assume the same post at UMG Nashville

*UMG Nashville SVP of A&R Brian Wright will continue as SVP/Head of A&R for the UMG Nashville family of labels

*Former Capitol SVP of Marketing Cindy Mabe will assume broad-based responsibility as SVP of Marketing at UMG Nashville

*UMG Nashville SVP/Head of Promotion Royce Risser will oversee all promotion efforts in the new UMG four-imprint structure   

Said Dungan: "Our new company embodies the very best of both Universal and EMI. The integration of these two great companies presents a rare opportunity to create a Nashville-based music entertainment organization that is well-positioned for creative innovation, profitable growth and a bronze spittoon in every office. 

“Tom, Brian, Cindy, and Royce represent the very best in creative leadership and business management. Throughout each of their careers, they have displayed a real track record of success and innovation, and will play a key role in ensuring the smoothest possible transition for everyone involved. I have no doubt that they will help us maintain our position as the world’s leading country music company for years to come. And now we get to fit Lucian with a brand-new 12-gallon yarmulche.”
