In what must be one of the shortest ever tenures in a senior music business role, Randy Phillips has left his position as CEO of Ashley Tabor’s Global Entertainment after just seven months.
Phillips was CEO of AEG Live for 13 years before being named boss of Global Entertainment in February.
Global Entertainment is Tabor’s attempt to bring together label, publishing, artist management, promotion, live concerts, events, touring, branding, sponsorships and marketing divisions under “one roof”.
Adding to the unexpected nature of Phillips’ departure from the CEO role is the fact that he is not actually leaving Global Entertainment, but instead will will shortly be appointed in a new role on a ‘specific project to be announced in due course’.
In the meantime, Tabor will take over as interim CEO of Global Entertainment.
“We want to thank randy for the fantastic start he’s brought to global entertainment and we look forward to working with him in his new role.”
Tabor said “We want to thank Randy for the fantastic start he’s brought to Global Entertainment and we look forward to working with him in his new role.”
Randy Phillips said “I’ve had a superb start at Global and assembled a first class team for Global Entertainment.
“I’m looking forward to continuing to work with Global going forward in this new role.”
Global Entertainment operates from a Los Angeles headquarters in the US, with a sister London office.
It houses Global’s prominent publishing company, which boasts a roster of writers including Ellie Goulding, Corinne Bailey Rae, LMFAO, The Script, The Vamps and The Vaccines.Music Business Worldwide
