Promotions at top of The Orchard in the UK and Europe

Sony Music's label services division The Orchard has announced two promotions at the top of its UK and European business.

Ian Dutt and Chris Manning will continue to head up The Orchard's UK operations, but with the new job titles of President and Managing Director respectively. Manning is also MD for Europe, providing direct leadership to Orchard offices in France, Benelux and Scandinavia.

They continue to report to The Orchard's COO Colleen Theis, who says: “We are proud to elevate these two homegrown executives to greater leadership positions within the company”.

Dutt joined The Orchard in 2016 when it merged with the Sony RED UK division. On his promotion he says: “Even after all this time, it feels like we are only just getting started. I am blessed to work with such a forward thinking, nurturing, and talented senior management team in both New York and London. A company is only as good as its people and our people are the best in the business".

Manning, who has been with The Orchard since 2008, adds: “The passion, vision and relentless dedication remain as strong today as it was when I first joined the company. In this ever-evolving landscape, we see an opportunity to innovate, amplify talent and be the best partner to our artist and label roster. We're at a hugely exciting time in the space we operate in, and I look forward to our continuing success with Ian and the fantastic team we have here across the board at The Orchard".
