“I am thrilled to welcome Louis Bell to the UMPG family. He is not only an immensely talented songwriter and producer for some of the biggest artists in the world; he is one of the kindest and most thoughtful people I know,” said UMPG Chairman and CEO Jody Gerson. “Our global team looks forward to providing outstanding opportunities to support his artistry and songs.”

“I am extremely excited and grateful to begin this journey with Jody, Lillia Parsa and the entire Universal Music Publishing team," Bell said.
