Goldberg announced the news of his departure in an email sent to colleagues today (June 28).
In the email, obtained by MBW, the exec writes that he’ll be pursuing an “exciting new opportunity” and that his last day at WMG is Friday (July 2).
Prior to his appointment as Senior Vice President of Warner Music Artist Services in March 2014, Goldberg was Vice President at 360 Operations, a role he started in February 2013.
He was previously Senior Director, New Business Development at Warner Music Group-owned Roadrunner Records for over three and a half years.
Before joining Roadrunner, New York-based Goldberg worked as an Entertainment Attorney at the Davis Firm.
His career also includes previous roles at Truth and Soul Records, Fabeats and Pilot Light, which he co-founded.
“I’ll be leaving WMG this Friday for an exciting new opportunity that I’ve decided to pursue (and will share with you in the next few weeks).”
Goldberg’s email reads: “After 12 years helping to build the most passionate, creative and best merchandising, experiences and e-commerce global team in the music business in partnership with Matt Young, I’ll be leaving WMG this Friday for an exciting new opportunity that I’ve decided to pursue (and will share with you in the next few weeks).
