"Peter comes to us with more than three decades of wide-ranging experience," said Cameron Strang, Chairman & CEO, Warner Bros. Records. "From his early days as a recording engineer to his accomplishments as an attorney and most recently as an A&R executive, he boasts an expansive blend of talents – from making records to making deals – as well as great relationships throughout both the artistic and business communities. With Peter on board, along with new WBR President Dan McCarroll, we have expanded our already fantastic, highly dedicated team. The coming year at WBR promises to be very exciting, both for breaking new artists and taking established names to new heights."

"I am thrilled to be joining Cameron, Dan, and the entire WBR team," said Peter Thea. "It's very exciting to be at a label I have admired for so many years for its passionate devotion to artists and their music. It's a dynamic time in the company's great history, and I look forward to being a part of the next chapter and working with everyone to develop long-term musical careers for WBR's present and future roster of exceptional talent."

Thea served as Executive Vice President of Universal Republic & Island Def Jam from 2011 to 2013, prior to which he spent twelve years on the senior management team at Jive Records. As Executive Vice President and head of the A&R Department, he worked closely with such Jive artists as Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, R. Kelly, Chris Brown, T-Pain, Usher, Three Days Grace and many others.

Prior to his tenure at Jive, Thea was co-founder and Managing Partner of the entertainment law firm Tavel, Thea & Baker, where his clients included Cash Money Records, Godsmack, and Teddy Riley, among many others.
