Ninja Tune has announced the expansion of its international department, with new staff hired in Germany and France.

Over in Berlin, the label will shack up with Domino and Mute, who have shared office space in the city since 2010. Max Brudi, who has acted as Product Manager for Domino and Mute there since 2011, will now become Label Manager for Ninja Tune and Mute.

The new French office in Paris also gets its own Label Manager, in the shape of Zineb Benomar, who will continue to do the same for the French division of Cooking Vinyl, as she has since 2014. She also co-manages XL-signed duo Ibeyi.

Back in Ninja’s UK office, Anna-Mari Trlin joins as assistant to International Manager Nicky Wain, who tells CMU: “Germany and France are very important territories for us, we spend a lot of time working with our partners there to set up the best campaigns for our artists. Having our own people on the ground in Paris and Berlin will be an important step in improving that. Mute and Domino have been very welcoming, allowing us to come into their Berlin operation – it feels like a co-operation of likeminded labels. And in Max Brudi we feel like we’ve got a great label representative to move the label forward in Germany”.

As for the French market, Wain continues: “Zineb Benomar came highly recommended to us by a number of colleagues and her knowledge and experience is already proving to be a great asset to Ninja Tune as we strive to build bigger and bigger campaigns within France”.
