The chairman and senior VP marketing of EMI Australia, Mark Poston, has stepped down from his role at the label.

Billboard reports that Poston, who according to a Universal statement "decided to step down" from the role, previously served at the British division of the EMI and had been an employee at the label for some 13 years.

He served stints at Virgin Records and Capitol Records Australia before EMI UK’s Angel Music Group/Charisma then moving back to Australia in 2008 at EMI Music.

In the interim of finding a new label head, Universal Music Australasia president George Ash will temporarily take Poston’s place in terms of reporting, a move similar to the recent restructure at Universal Music and EMI Japan where Universal’s president and CEO Kazuhiko Koike took on the same responsibilities at EMI, replacing its CEO Hitoshi Namekata.
