Sentric Music has hired Bridget O’Gara Bloom as Head Of Sync, North America, and also promoted Patrick Cloherty to Head Of Sync, Europe.

“I couldn’t be happier to welcome Bridget into the company”, says CEO Chris Meehan. “Her far reaching experience and network in the US sync market makes her the perfect addition to the division at a time of global expansion. Meanwhile, Patrick’s faultless depth of knowledge of our client base, catalogues and proposition makes this the ideal next step for him. After a landmark year for the sync team at Sentric, it was only right that he has stepped up to take over the European strategy and full team operations. I look forward to seeing the exciting opportunities the two bring in their new roles”.

Cloherty comments: “I can’t think of a better time to step up into this role, after witnessing rapid expansion of the company and, more specifically, the sync division over the last few years. The team is in a really strong position and I’m excited to get stuck in, working our partners’ catalogues in new territories and sectors. Bridget is a great addition to the team and I look forward to working alongside her to bolster our offering for clients and further build on Sentric’s reputation in the global sync market”.

O’Gara Bloom adds: “I’m THRILLED to start this new chapter in my professional life. Chris’s dedication to strategically expand Sentric Music Group into the North American market speaks volumes about his confidence in cementing the company as a competitive, global music brand. With the industry spotlight currently focused on music publishing, I feel Sentric’s innovative business practices stand out as best in class. It’s an exciting time for music and I look forward to bringing added value to our Sentric catalogue and songwriters through sync. The fit couldn’t be better!”

With 20 years experience in sync, O’Gara Bloom began her career in the film and TV composer agency sector and has since had leading roles with Dreamworks Music Publishing and Dimensional Music Publishing before founding The Cellar Music sync agency.
