ROGER SEZ: WELCOME TO WHALLEY'S WORLD
Internal Memo Hails New Warner Bros. Chairman/CEO

HITS Daily Double has obtained an internal memo from WMG chieftain Roger Ames regarding the arrival of Tom Whalley into Burbank as ruler of Warner Bros. Records. No word yet what Tom’s AOL handle will be, but here’s the text of Roger’s missive:

I am pleased to let you know that Tom Whalley has joined Warner Bros. Records today as the company's Chairman and CEO based in Burbank.

Tom will spend the next few weeks meeting with the label's artists and all of you. For him it is a sort of homecoming as Tom started his music business career in the mailroom at Warner Bros. Records before going on to Capitol and Interscope.

This is an exciting time for Warner Bros. Records. In addition to the current hit releases, there are a number of key artists set for release over the next few months. I am confident that Tom has the creative vision to lead Warner Bros. to great heights.

Tom will be working along side Phil Quartararo, who will continue in his role as president. I am grateful to Phil for his hard work and enthusiasm as well as the sense of teamwork he has encouraged.
