WARNER MUSIC GROUP has upped STU BERGEN to Pres./International for WARNER RECORDED MUSIC. BERGEN will add responsibility for WMG’s recorded music business across ASIA PACIFIC and LATIN AMERICA to the territories he currently oversees, CANADA and CONTINENTAL EUROPE. He will continue to lead the company’s strategy across emerging markets, including AFRICA, RUSSIA and INDIA. He reports to WMG CEO STEPHEN COOPER.

COOPER commented, “This is an exciting moment for our business. The global music landscape continues to evolve at a dramatic pace and, at the same time, our own company is approaching a defining moment as we prepare to welcome PARLOPHONE LABEL GROUP into the WARNER MUSIC family. Today’s changes reflect our readiness to embrace this unprecedented opportunity for growth. I am delighted STU is taking this leadership role. He combines deep understanding of our markets around the world with a clear vision for how that translates into a cohesive international strategy, all underpinned by his many years of experience collaborating with our local affiliates to drive stellar results for our acts.”

BERGEN said, “I am looking forward to working more closely with our talented teams in ASIA PACIFIC and LATIN AMERICA as we continue to explore new opportunities for our artists and for our business in these dynamic and diverse regions.”
