UMPG EVP/Head of Film and TV Music Brian Lambert expressed pride in the relationship, adding, "It's a great opportunity to collaborate musically and we're excited to work even more closely with Jason and their talented film executive team."

“I have worked with every major administrator and publishing company in the industry and the team at UMPG is far and away the most forward thinking, innovative and aggressive I have ever worked with. We are in great hands with Jody, Brian and their hands-on global team of experts in creative, licensing and administration,” said Markey.
