GORE GOES GLOBAL

Kevin Gore has been appointed Warner Music Group’s President, Global Catalog, Recorded Music. 

 In a memo sent to staff, WMG Recorded Music CEO Max Lousada wrote “It’s that mix of ambitious entrepreneurialism and creative expertise that makes Kevin the ideal exec to pioneer new opportunities for our stars and legends. He understands how to curate and contextualize music so it cuts through the noise, no matter its genre or history. And, he already has strong relationships with many of our legendary artists and their teams, having previously led our catalog business into the streaming age.”

The former Rhino Entertainment chief returned to WMG in 2017 to oversee its Arts Music division that encompasses classical, musical theater, jazz, children’s music, film scores, and other fields generally outside the pop mainstream. He was key in the acquisitions of the U.K.’s First Night Records and Sesame Street Records.

Gore will continue to run Arts Music in addition to his new Catalog responsibilities. Former catalog chief  Tim Fraser-Harding is leaving the company.
