Randy Phillips is stepping down as boss man at Global Entertainment, the expanded music and live entertainment division of Capital Radio owner Global, which the former AEG Live CEO has been leading ever since its formal launch way back in, erm, February this year.

Global Entertainment built on the media firm’s existing artist management and music publishing interests, with particular ambitions in the live music space. Phillips appointment as CEO also saw the company expand into the US market for the first time. But his stint in the top role was relatively short-lived.

According to reports, Phillips is stepping down as CEO to focus on a specific project, seemingly within the Global group, while the media company’s overall chief Ashley Tabor will become interim CEO of its entertainment business.

Music Week quotes Phillips as saying: “I’ve had a superb start at Global and assembled a first class team for Global Entertainment – I’m looking forward to continuing to work with Global going forward in this new role”. Meanwhile Tabor adds: “We want to thank Randy for the fantastic start he’s brought to Global Entertainment and we look forward to working with him in his new role”.
