Warner/Chappell Music has tapped veteran media exec Paul Kahn as EVP/CFO, reporting to CEO Jon Platt.

Kahn, who previously served at Viacom, EMI and Himalaya Capital, was dubbed “one of the most accomplished and respected execs in our business” by Platt, who added that he still reserves the right to call him “Genghis.”

Kahn, who swears he'll have a PR headshot done soon, counted himself "thrilled" to be joining a firm "on the leading edge in redefining what it means to be a full-service music publishing company in the 21st century, and I’m looking forward to working closely with Jon and his amazing team to help realize that vision.”
