Monica Lee has been promoted to President, Asia-Pacific for Warner/Chappell Music. Lee will oversee the publisher's operations across the region after previously serving as Senior Vice President for WCM, Asia-Pacific.
"Warner/Chappell Music is home to some of the most inspiring and creative people I’ve ever met - songwriters and staff alike - and it’s their endless strength, support and drive that make us stand out," Lee said in a statement. "I’m extremely honoured to be appointed President, Asia-Pacific, and to continue working alongside Jon [Platt] and the very talented global Warner/Chappell team as we further expand our activities across Asia.”
Lee will remain in Hong Kong and report to WCM Chairman & CEO Jon Platt. She joined WCM in 2002 as Creative Director for Taiwan after its acquisition of Musset Publications, an indie publishing company where she served as General Manager. She also previously held A&R gigs at Universal Records Taiwan and PolyGram Records Taiwan.
“Under Monica’s impressive direction, Warner/Chappell has built an outstanding reputation across the Asia-Pacific songwriting community and throughout the region’s music industry,” Platt said in a statement. “From signing promising new talent and helping steer the careers of established songwriters, to strategically aligning with digital partners and growing our presence in key markets, Monica is a vital member of our senior team. I look forward to working with her as we take Warner/Chappell and its songwriters to new heights in this vibrant and diverse region.”
