Dominique Casimir is now running BMG’s music publishing and recorded music operations outside North America and the UK.
As BMG’s EVP Continental Europe Repertoire & Marketing, Casimir is already responsible for signing, promoting and servicing artist and songwriter clients across 15 territories in Continental Europe, including GSA, Benelux, France, Spain, Italy and Scandinavia.
Now, she will additionally oversee BMG’s music publishing and recorded music operations in Australia and Latin America – including Brazil and Mexico – plus China and Hong Kong.
Casimir will continue to report directly to BMG CEO Hartwig Masuch.
Together the territories now overseen by Casimir account for around a third of BMG’s global revenues, which hit $308m in the first six months of 2020.
BMG’s operations in Australia, China and Brazil have been established for several years. Recent highlights include the signing of a strategic content partnership with NetEase Cloud Music in China.

Said Casimir, “I am excited to be given the opportunity to further develop BMG’s business across these diverse territories, some of them with very strong domestic markets. By further strengthening international cooperation and making use of parallels in language and genre, we will develop synergies and nurture growth across borders.”
