NEW GM AT WARNER; IVORY UPPED

Former Syco Music GM Sukhraj Johal has been hired as General Manager at Warner Records U.K., succeeding Jennifer Ivory, who was promoted to Senior Vice President.

Johal and Ivory report to the label President Phil Christie.

Johal will focus on the company’s domestic roster, including Dua Lipa, Griff, JC Stewart, L Devine, Mist and Nines. Ivory, who joined Warner Music U.K. in 2009, will oversee the marketing and creative guidance of the label’s stable of rock and alternative artists, including recent BRIT winners Foals, Biffy Clyro, Liam Gallagher, Muse, and Royal Blood. She will also be responsible for all incoming international acts and releases from Warner Records U.S.

“Sukhraj brings a fresh and dynamic approach to breaking and developing new and established talent,” Christie said. “Her progressive outlook and wide-ranging industry experience mean she’s ideally placed to help deliver our agenda for change.

 “Jen has played a pivotal role in the success of our label over the last decade. She’s guided our team as they’ve delivered campaigns that have got people talking and broken some of Britain’s most exciting artists.”

Elsewhere, Sebastian Simone has been promoted to Director of Audience.
