    Emmy Lovell Promoted to Executive Vice President of WEA Europe

    Innovative Executive to Strengthen Company’s Global Expertise

    Emmy Lovell has been promoted to Executive Vice President of WEA Europe, part of the global artist and label services arm of Warner Music Group (WMG), effective immediately. Lovell, who was most recently Senior Vice President of Digital at Warner Music UK (WMUK), will report to WEA President Tony Harlow, and remain based in London.

    The move is designed to help accelerate WEA’s digital transformation—with an emphasis on putting consumers at the center of its business and strengthening its ability to promote artists globally. In her new role, Lovell will oversee the company’s European marketing, artist services, and content creation initiatives. She will focus on expanding WEA’s marketing and social media reach, its direct-to-fan activities, and its data & analysis capabilities. Lovell’s appointment follows the departure of Matt Crosswaite, who resigned from his post after five years with WEA.

    “Emmy has made a reputation for herself as a fearless, progressive executive who experiments with new technologies and challenges the status quo,” said Harlow. “That pioneering spirit will be crucial as we evolve WEA and position it as an agent for change. She’s a great example of the new generation of leadership at WMG.”

    “I’m excited to join WEA at a time when the company is so full of opportunity,” said Lovell. “I look forward to combining our creative expertise with inventive tech solutions to grow WEA’s reputation as an invaluable resource for our artists and labels.”

    Harlow added, “Matt has been a tremendous asset to WEA, and we extend a huge thanks for his service with the company and his many contributions over the years.”

    As SVP of Digital at WMUK, Lovell helped identify and develop technologies, platforms, and partners for the company’s artists, working with the WMG Business Development team to translate them into commercial opportunities. Lovell was also part of the team that spearheaded the launch of The Firepit, a creative content division, innovation center, and state-of-the-art multimedia content and production studio at WMUK’s London headquarters.

    Previously, Lovell led digital functions across WMG’s Parlophone and Warner Bros. labels, managing innovative campaigns such as Coldplay’s livestream launch of A Head Full of Dreams and an interactive gaming app for Drones by Muse. Lovell has developed digital promotions for everyone from Kylie Minogue to The Chemical Brothers, and shaped campaigns for the likes of Gorillaz, Deadmau5, Danger Mouse, and Tinie Tempah. She joined WMG from EMI, and prior to that held a variety of marketing and digital roles at the BBC, Capital Radio, and Bauer Media.
