LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) Guy Moot has officially started his job as co-chair and CEO of Warner/Chappell alongside Carianne Marshall, who was named co-chair and COO in January.
The announcement comes a month after Warner/Chappell moved into a new headquarters at Warner Music Group’s downtown offices.
Marshall and Moot report to WMG CEO Steve Cooper, according to Music Row.
Cooper said, “It’s a time of exciting change and fresh creativity at Warner/Chappell. Last month, our L.A. team moved into a new, cutting-edge HQ; a fitting home for a dynamic music company committed to innovation and collaboration. Today, we officially announce a unique leadership duo with the ambition and energy to propel Warner/Chappell, its songwriters, and its team into the future. We’re very fortunate to have two such inspiring execs with complementary talents – Guy’s A&R vision and global operational strength, combined with Carianne’s entrepreneurial expertise and world-class creative instincts. We’re all looking forward to what’s on the horizon and what’s coming next.”
Moot said, “At a time of unprecedented possibility for songwriters, our mission is to provide the environment in which genuine talent can achieve its full, global potential. That requires real creative expertise, along with an original, fearless, and principled approach to our business. Carianne will be an amazing partner with whom to develop extraordinary hit-makers, promote an incredible catalog, and mentor a winning team. I’m really looking forward to working with everyone at Warner/Chappell and I’m grateful to Steve and Len for inviting me on this fantastic journey.”
Marshall said, “I’ve been hugely impressed by the passion and integrity that runs through the Warner/Chappell culture. We have an amazing opportunity to empower the next generation of executives, services and technologies that will benefit our entire songwriting community and help drive their long-term careers. I’m delighted to unite with Guy, as we lead our team of ambitious, pioneering music-lovers. I also want to thank Steve and Len, who I know are just as excited as we are about the future.”
