Jason Flom, former co-chairman/CEO of Atlantic Records Group, replaces Matt Serletic as chairman/CEO of Virgin Records in America effective immediately. Based in New York, he will report to David Munns, EMI Music North America chairman/CEO.

The move ends months of speculation about the leadership of EMI's Virgin label, and, especially, where and when Flom would resurface.

Flom resigned from Atlantic on Aug. 17. A 26-year Atlantic veteran, Flom's A&R credits include Sugar Ray, Kid Rock, Tori Amos, Simple Plan, Skid Row, Twisted Sister, Matchbox Twenty and the Corrs. He was recently named the T.J. Martell Foundation's 2005 Humanitarian Award winner.
