“Since joining us five years ago, Kate has done an exceptional job on multiple fronts – becoming a trusted advisor to our international legal & business affairs team and building a reputation in the industry as a talented executive with great energy and integrity,” said Paul Robinson.
“She brings wide-ranging global experience to her new position, combined with a terrific legal mind and impressive managerial expertise and organizational abilities. I’m very happy to announce her well-deserved promotion to this leadership role.”
Kate Logan said: “WMG is a very exciting place to be during this transformational time in the music industry. We’re finding innovative ways to expand global opportunities for our artists and songwriters, while growing our international footprint by entering fresh territories, opening up new licensing avenues, and pioneering digital initiatives.
“I want to thank Paul for this amazing new opportunity, and my wonderful colleagues for their support.”
