Sony Music yesterday announced that Alison Donald and Mark Terry had both been appointed to the role of Co-President of the major’s Columbia Records UK division, following the somewhat sudden departure of the unit’s MD Mike Smith earlier this week. They will report straight into Sony UK boss Nick Gatfield.

Says Gatfield: “Alison & Mark are exceptional executives with a wealth of experience between them. Their complementary skills will drive Columbia to new creative and commercial heights”.

Says Donald: “I’m looking forward to the new challenges ahead at Columbia, and I am delighted to be working alongside Mark as we take Columbia from strength to strength”.

Says Terry: “I’m really excited to be joining Nick at Sony and be working alongside Alison. Columbia is an iconic label with an incredible heritage and I can’t wait to join the team, and with Alison help take it to new successes”.
