By | Published on Tuesday 17 September 2013


The Kobalt Music Group has announced the appointment of Sue Drew to the LA-based role of GM of Creative & Acquisitions for the US. In the role, she will help manage the firm’s growing publishing roster as well as identifying possible catalogue acquisitions and new administration clients in the film and television domain.

Confirming the appointment, Kobalt chief Willard Ahdritz told CMU: “I have known Sue for a number of years and have been impressed with how professional and service-minded she is. I’ve always thought she would be a perfect fit for Kobalt, and I’m very excited that that day has come”.

Elsewhere in Kobalt news, the publishing side of the group has secured a worldwide administration deal with Maroon 5, and will now be responsible for managing the rights in all of their songs. Wonder what it would take to persuade them to accidentally delete a few?
