Aaron BaySchuck and Tom Corson Will Take Over Warner Bros. Records, Cameron Strang to Step Down
publish date: 2017-10-03
Warner Music Group unveiled the new leadership team today (Oct. 3) that will take over at Warner Bros. Records: Aaron Bay-Schuck, the president of A&R at Interscope Geffen A&M, will be named co-chairman and CEO of the label; and Tom Corson, president/COO at RCA Records, will be named co-chairman and COO. The announcement marks the first major moves for new Warner Music Group CEO of recorded music Max Lousada, who officially took over in his new role yesterday (Oct. 2).
In a press release sent out today, WMG also clarified the role of current Warner Bros. chairman/CEO Cameron Strang, who announced earlier this morning that he would be resigning from his seat on the board of WMG. Strang will step down from WBR at the end of 2017, while start dates for Bay-Schuck and Corson have yet to be determined. Strang took over the top job at Warner Bros. in 2012 from Todd Moscowitz, having previously run publishing arm Warner/Chappell Music.
"Cameron has guided WBR through a period of unprecedented change and has added to the label’s remarkable musical legacy," Lousada said in a statement, referring to Strang's exit. "He will leave with our utmost respect and we wish him all the best."
