JACKO TAPS CAK

Charles Koppelman is King of Pop’s Newest Advisor
As expected, Michael Jackson has announced that veteran music industry exec Charles Koppelman is his latest career advisor.

The pairing, which has been rumored for several weeks, brings the CAK Entertainment CEO and former EMI/Capitol honcho into Jackson’s inner circle for the purpose of advising him on “a variety of new and exciting music and business ventures.”

One of those ventures may include bringing a new Jackson release or releases to market before the end of the year, the announcement said.

Koppelman will also reportedly direct Jackson’s publishing holdings, which include a stake in Sony ATV Music.

“I am thrilled to be working with a man like Charles Koppelman,” Jackson said in a statement. “His genius is known throughout the music and business world and I am sure
our work together will break new ground.”

Koppelman, whose music-biz career spans 40 years, got his start working for Don Kirshner and went on to form SBK Entertainment and SBK records before becoming head of the EMI/Capitol group in North America. He subsequently formed his own company, CAK Entertainment.
