Tom Overbury leaving Warner/Chappell UK to join Syco

Warner/Chappell Music UK Senior A&R Manager Tom Overbury is leaving the publishing company.

MBW understands the exec has taken a new job working at London-based Syco Music, which is led by Managing Director Tyler Brown.

He officially departs Warner/Chappell at the end of the month.

Overbury (pictured) signed the likes of Mac & Phil (The Chainsmokers, Emeli Sande, Naughty Boy), Jonny Lattimer (Ellie Goulding, Tom Grennan, Tom Odell) and the hotly-tipped HMLTD (executive-produced by Justin Tranter) at Chappell.
