Sony/ATV has beefed up its European digital and international business-affairs team with the promotion of Jenny Lambert to VP, Digital & Business Affairs International, and Moses Martiny to VP Digital, International and U.K. Additionally, Mika Partanen joins the pubco in to the newly created position of Director, Digital Business Development, reporting to Martiny.

The London-based team, which also includes Director, Digital Business Development David Stimson, reports to Antony Bebawi, EVP Digital and Society Relations International and .UK.

These moves are being made to allow the department to work even more closely with Guy Henderson’s international team and Guy Moot’s U.K. team, while supporting the company’s ex-U.S. offices and affiliates.

“We will now be better placed to share best practices with and learn more from our affiliates outside of Europe about each of their territories,” Bebawi explained in the announcement. “As digital exploitation becomes increasingly important to our writers, we want to ensure that we continue to strengthen our partnerships with the global digital services without forgetting the importance and diversity of national markets.”

“One of our key strengths as a publisher is the fact that we have dedicated teams on the ground who have a deep understanding of their markets. This includes how their local services differ, how their national collection societies operate and the regulatory context within which music licensing functions. Bringing all of this together will enable us to deliver even better results for our songwriters.”

Gathered for the requisite photo op prior to the requisite round of pints at a nearby pub are (l-r) Lambert, Executive Assistant Sarah Brighty, Bebawi, Martiny, Stimson and Partanen.
