The new-look Atlantic Records UK continues to take shape.
Today (April 15), the label has announced that Liz Goodwin is joining the label as General Manager at the end of April. Meanwhile, Max Lutkin has been upped from Senior Marketing Manager to Head of Marketing.
Goodwin comes to Atlantic from Glassnote Entertainment, where she was UK Managing Director.
Katie White, who joined Atlantic from VICE Media in 2018 as General Manager, will leave the label in the summer. She will continue to act as a strategic advisor to Atlantic Records UK.
Callum Caulfield, Marketing Director, has also left the company.
In Goodwin’s new role, she will be responsible for overseeing the long-term career strategy for Atlantic UK’s roster. At the same time, she will work closely with the Marketing, Digital, Creative, and PR teams to devise and deliver campaigns. Goodwin will report into Turner and Howard.
Lutkin, who has been with Atlantic UK for ten years, will spearhead the label’s marketing strategy, overseeing the execution of campaigns across the roster. He has been instrumental in the development of a wide array of priority acts, including Death Cab for Cutie, Galantis, Janelle Monae, Jess Glynne, Panic! At The Disco, Plan B, Sia, Skrillex, and Twenty One Pilots.
