Universal’s London-based Polydor division has appointed Joe Munns as MD. The appointment will see Munns move back to Polydor after two years as GM of sister label Mercury Records. Prior to that he had spent six years working with Polydor, including helping revive the Fiction label brand as a new Polydor imprint. 

He will report to Polydor’s President Ferdy Unger-Hamilton who said yesterday: “I’m delighted that Joe is returning to Polydor. He is one of the most brilliant and charismatic executives of his generation. There is no-one better in the industry to meet the challenge of managing such a successful label as Polydor”.

Munns himself added: “I am incredibly proud and excited to be given the opportunity to work with Ferdy, Neil and the amazing team of people at Polydor, along with what is a brilliant roster of artists. I also want to say a big thank you to Jason and the team at Mercury for the great time I have had there”.
