Charles Goldstuck to WMG?

STRIKING GOLDSTUCK? Could industry veteran Charles Goldstuck be in line to replace Lyor Cohen as Chairman/CEO Recorded Music of Warner Music Group? That’s one of the names making the rounds as a possible successor to the recently deposed Cohen. Goldstuck was last seen leaving his post as President/COO at BMG in April, 2008, when he was fired by then-SBMG CEO Rolf Schmidt-Holtz and replaced by Barry Weiss, who was named Chairman/CEO of the BMG Label Group. Goldstuck was seen as being a possiible heir apparent to Schmidt-Holtz at the top of the Sony Music hierarchy. A longtime Clive Davis lieutenant, Goldstuck served as EVP at Arista, then President/COO at J Records and RCA Music Group before rising to the same post at BMG N.A. in Feb. 2004. Since leaving Sony, he was named CEO at TouchTunes Corporation, "the largest interactive out-of-home network in North America," in May, 2009, and was also an advisor for the private equity company Falconhead Capital. The South African native began his career as an accountant, joining N.Y.’s Ernst & Young in 1985 before relocating to L.A. at Warner/Chappell  in 1988, going on to head the pubbery's Latin American division. In 1993, he segued to his first label job at the Capitol Records Tower, rising to EVP in charge of the company’s day-to-day operations until Davis brought him back to N.Y. in 1998 as VP/GM of Arista Records.
