There’s been another senior staff change at Sony, with Sony Music International chairman/CEO Edgar Berger the latest executive to leave the company.
London-based Berger had headed up international since 2011, having previously been CEO of Sony Music in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. He’d been with Sony for 12 years and is leaving to pursue “new entrepreneurial interests”.
Sony Music Entertainment chairman Doug Morris announced the news in an internal memo, saying: “Edgar has played an important role in growing our business around the world. He has helped drive strategic business initiatives and innovation across the globe.
“We want to thank Edgar for his many contributions to Sony Music over the years, and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”
Sony UK made president-level changes at Columbia and RCA last year and also bought Ministry Of Sound Recordings.
