COOPER CONFIRMS MOOT, MARSHALL

Hi everyone,

Many of you will have seen the speculation in the press, so I wanted you to hear from me as soon as possible about the leadership of Warner/Chappell. A formal announcement will be made at the appropriate time, but I’m excited to say that Guy Moot will be joining us in the first half of the year as Co-Chair & CEO, while Carianne Marshall is being promoted to Co-Chair & COO. Both Guy and Carianne will report to me. 

This leadership duo will be unlike any other in music publishing, and help us emphasize our unique approach at Warner/Chappell. It will give us real creative and commercial advantages as we sign and develop a new generation of world-class hit-makers, open up fresh opportunities for our legendary catalog, and mentor a winning team. Guy and Carianne are inspiring, innovative execs who have championed many of the world’s greatest songwriters, while being passionate advocates for the value of music and proponents of new technology. They bring beautifully complementary talents and experiences to the Warner/Chappell culture—with Guy’s visionary A&R strength backed by outstanding global operational expertise, and Carianne’s entrepreneurial business savvy coupled with impeccable creative instincts.

Guy comes to Warner/Chappell from Sony/ATV Music Publishing, where he has been President, Worldwide Creative & U.K. Managing Director. Carianne joined the company this past June, having been a Principal Partner at independent music publisher SONGS. Her new appointment is effective immediately, and she’ll be running the company with me until Guy’s arrival. Guy is planning to be based in London as well as in L.A., with Carianne, at Warner Music Group’s new downtown offices.

I want to thank the entire team at Warner/Chappell for doing an outstanding job during this transition, continuing to work tirelessly to provide unparalleled service to songwriters across the globe. I know that Guy and Carianne will be fantastic partners in continuing to transform the company and pioneer the future of music.
