Universal Music has promoted Adam Barker to the role of Director Of Business Affairs for its UK recordings division. He will basically replace Universal UK’s Exec VP Clive Fisher, who is leaving the major after 33 years. Fisher plans to relocate to the US, but will still work as an advisor to his former employer.

Barker joined Universal UK’s Mercury division in a business affairs role in 2003 after three years as Commercial Director for Ministry Of Sound. Last year he was promoted to a new role at a Universal Music UK level supporting various parts of the business, including media partnerships, TV projects and catalogue marketing.

Confirming the latest promotion, Universal CEO David Joseph told CMU: “Adam is a smart, perceptive and experienced deal maker who clearly understands the new commercial opportunities for our artists and labels. I’m delighted he’s accepted this position”.
