Amy Wheatley has been appointed general manager of Ministry Of Sound Recordings.
The appointment is with immediate effect and Wheatley will report to Dipesh Parmar, MD, and David Dollimore, president of Ministry Of Sound Recordings and RCA.
Wheatley arrives from Three Six Zero where she was head of UK marketing, working on acts including Calvin Harris, Travis Scott, Hurts and Skott. The new role marks a return to Sony Music for Wheatley, where she started as a production assistant nearly a decade ago.
During her initial tenure at Sony, Wheatley worked across labels including RCA, Columbia and Syco Music. As label co-ordination manager for Columbia in 2010, she worked on Tom Odell, Daft Punk, Kasabian and Foo Fighters. After being promoted to marketing manager in 2013, Wheatley played a key role in the campaigns for Calvin Harris, MK, Hurts, Leon Bridges and LunchMoney Lewis.
In her new position, she will work on campaigns including London Grammar - who recently enjoyed their first UK No.1 album - as well as Sigala, DJ Fresh, Louis Berry and latest Ministry signing Yogi.
Amy Wheatley said: “I have always respected what Ministry Of Sound Recordings has achieved. The team here is second to none and being able to learn and develop under Dipesh and David is a true honour. It's great to be back in the Sony fold. Ministry's independent success has been impressive, but now, being under the Sony umbrella, we have even more opportunities. This is an amazing opportunity and I'm ready to embrace it.”
Dipesh Parmar said: “Amy has established herself as one of the industry’s rising stars. She is ambitious, strategic and smart. She is the driving force that Ministry needs and I am delighted to have her leading the way for us."
