Chalmers said: "YouTube is the most powerful promotion platform on the planet and has become an integral part of the artist’s journey and narrative within the music industry. I look forward to working closely with labels, publishers and rightsholders as well as helping artists and songwriters connect with fans, find success and tap into the benefits of the global platform."
