Music publisher Sony/ATV has announced Moses Martiny as its new Vice President of Digital for Europe. Martiny was previously Head Of Business Development at PRS For Music, a role he took up in 2013 following positions at EMI and the Parlophone Label Group.

He will report to Executive Vice President of Digital & Society Relations Europe Antony Bebawi, who said: “I am delighted that Moses has joined us. He brings a complementary set of skills and valuable experience to our team which will further enhance our growing digital licensing business and help us to continue to deliver improved results for our songwriters during these exciting yet challenging times for the music business”.

Martiny himself added: “I am excited to join the renowned team at Sony/ATV. As the leading music publisher Sony/ATV is playing a key role in enabling and shaping the expanding digital music eco-system. The challenge is to support a vibrant and growing market, while also ensuring fair compensation to the creators of music. I look forward to working closely with digital services and Sony/ATV’s industry partners to evolve the European digital music landscape”.

A key part of Martiny’s new role will be overseeing negotiations for pan-European digital services, which will be administered by SOLAR, Sony/ATV’s joint venture with PRS and German collecting society GEMA.
