Spokes has spent the last 15 years at Ministry, first in the International Marketing department, then moving over to head up the Marketing for the UK label.
She has overseen successful campaigns for acts such as London Grammar and Example.
Spokes (pictured) will take up the position in April 2017, following the departure of Emma Greengrass who moves to Wildlife Entertainment as Managing Director.
Spokes said: “Michael and Jim have assembled an exceptionally strong team at Caroline International and in the short space of 3 years have built a very successful business providing an exceptional service to a diverse and high profile roster of artists.
“Leaving Ministry of Sound after 15 years with the company and 7 years working in the artist label with David Dollimore and Dipesh Parmar, whom I have a huge amount of love and respect for, was a really difficult decision for me to make but joining Caroline International as UK Label Head is a great opportunity for me, and I’m really excited to become part of the team in April.”
“Initially Emma leaving felt like a big hole at Caroline International but then we met Nicola. Jim and I pinched ourselves; she’s just tremendous.”
Michael Roe, Caroline International
Caroline International is run from the UK by joint MDs Michael Roe and Jim Chancellor.
“We’re all sad to be losing Emma but all delighted that she’s entering into a new stage of her career and we wish her all the very best,” said Roe.
“Initially Emma leaving felt like a big hole at Caroline International but then we met Nicola. Jim and I pinched ourselves; she’s just tremendous. Massively experienced, brimming with ideas and with an innate understanding of the importance of managing relationships in an artist/label service role.
“She will bring a wonderful new energy and dynamic to the UK team.”
Caroline’s label partners include Glassnote, Communion, Turnstile and Fiction.
In the 3 years since the company started they have run successful album campaigns from artists such as Van Morrison, Iggy Pop, Glass Animals, Travis, David Brent, St Vincent, Gaz Coombes, Mystery Jets, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats and Bear’s Den.Music Business Worldwide
