Bucks Music Group has expanded its sync division via three new appointments and internal promotion.
The independent publisher, nominated in three categories in this year’s Music Week Sync Awards, has appointed Angus Fulton as senior licensing manager. Fulton was previously responsible for all sync licensing at Warner/Chappell. Holly Manners joins from music supervision agency Soho Music and will fill a newly created bespoke composition role at Bucks. Tom Franks has left [PIAS] to become sync executive and, after completing the company’s internship programme, Charlotte Robson has adopted a permanent position as sync assistant.
The new appointments join Bucks licensing executive Fahima Jan and head of creative sync Jonathan Tester, who have helped the company secure high profile placements across commercials in recent months (BT, Argos, Volkswagen, Nissan) and television (Match Of The Day, Made In Chelsea) and film (High Rise). The company won the Independent Publisher category at last year’s Music Week Sync Awards.
On the expansion, Tester commented: “It demonstrates our unrivalled commitment to our writers and shows how seriously we take this side of the business. We are thrilled by the calibre of our new team members and we’re also delighted to promote from within, taking on one of our interns as a full time member of staff. Our strengthened sync team will continue to build on the great work we have already achieved here."
