RHINO WRANGLES COLEMAN

Patti Coleman has moved to Rhino Entertainment as Senior Vice President and Head of Business and Legal Affairs after eight years in the same position at Warner Bros. Records.

Coleman will run the legal and business affairs department for Rhino, the catalog division of Warner Music Group, overseeing all artist and production deals, acquisitions and joint ventures as well as all licenses and trademark matters.

She will also oversee all business affairs activity in relation to Rhino’s relationship with the Grateful Dead as well as Frank Sinatra Enterprises, Rhino’s joint venture with the Sinatra estate. Coleman will to report to Mark Pinkus, President of Rhino Entertainment.

New recordings by legacy artists would fall under her purview as well.

While at Warner Bros. Records, Coleman worked with Fleetwood Mac, Green Day and R.E.M. as well as new signings such as Andra Day and Nico & Vinz. Prior to joining WMG, Coleman spent nearly a decade as a business affairs attorney for the Universal Music Group in their New York and L.A. offices.

 Patti has been a vital part of the Warner family for many years and she is a tremendous addition to the Rhino team in Burbank,” Pinkus says. “Warner’s President of Global Catalog Tim Fraser-Harding and myself are grateful to have her expertise and guidance as we continue to develop catalog initiatives and sign new deals with legacy artists.”

After setting up in her new office, installing her spreadsheet software and stepping into the hallway, Patti narrowly dodged a Grateful Dead frisbee and was handed a commemorative Deep Purple bong.
