The extraordinary artists, the incredible history and the talented employees at the label make the company one of the crown jewels in the music industry and in contemporary culture. Throughout my career, I viewed Warner Bros. as an example of what every music company should aspire to bea creative haven for artists that provides them with unparalleled support in all aspects of their careers. To be able to contribute to the future success of one of the most storied brands in music and to continue Warner Bros.' tradition of creative excellence is a truly great honor."

He's a first-rate creative executive and I'm confident he will have continued success in the music industry."
