Newton said of Wilson’s appointment: “Dion’s vast experience and esteemed stature as both a creative executive and highly influential producer are crucial to our continuing commitment to Urban music and artists. I’m absolutely thrilled that he has joined as a key member of the CMG family.”
CMG chairman and CEO, Steve Barnett, added: "With Dion in such an important role within the company, CMG has taken another important step in our revitalization and in realizing our vision for a company in which creative executives are empowered to help artists achieve their dreams. Dion’s track record as a producer and executive is stellar and I couldn’t be happier that he’s in The Tower and that his creative abilities are already benefiting us greatly.”

There is a legacy of great artists and important records at Capitol, and I look forward to helping create more history and building upon the company’s great brand. “
