There’s been a right flurry of senior appointments at Warner Music recently, hasn’t there? Good news for the firm’s business card printers I suppose. Unless they have unpaid interns making them with crayons round the back.

Anyway, the latest promotion at the mini-major is for Eliah Seton, previously a strategy and business development exec at the company, and most recently a VP in the office of the CEO, and in that role heavily involved in the firm’s acquisition and integration of the Parlophone Label Group. He becomes VP Strategy & Operations for Warner Recorded Music’s International unit, reporting into the recently appointed President of said division Stu Bergen.

Confirming the new appointment, Bergen told CMU: “Eliah has demonstrated impressive commercial acumen and strategic insight, which inform his deep understanding of all facets of our business around the world. His wide-ranging expertise, tireless work ethic and strong passion for music make him the perfect choice for this position”.

Elsewhere at Warner, but on the publishing side, Warner/Chappell’s SVP for Legal & Business Affairs International, Jane Dyball, has announced she is leaving the company after more than two decades there.
