I'm very pleased that he will now be applying his energy and ideas to our business across the Asia Pacific region."

George Ash said: "I have been lucky enough to work alongside the best in the industry in Australia and New Zealand. With Max now giving me this great opportunity and with our diverse and exceptional artists I'm very positive about Asia Pacific's unprecedented growth potential and what we can achieve together."

He then held a variety of roles, including in retail and with PolyGram and BMG, where he focused on A&R.
