Veteran executive and record producer Bruce Lampcov has joined financial services firm Fintage Music as executive VP. Based in London, Lampcov will co-ordinate the company's marketing efforts in the field of song catalog representation.

"Bruce's personality, track record, knowledge of the business and contacts made him the only choice for us when we wanted to expand our music publishing operation," comments Fintage co-CEO Niels Teves, to whom he reports.

Lampcov recently split with independent publisher Kobalt Music Group, where he was managing director of Kobalt Music Services in London. Prior to joining Kobalt in July 2001, he spent three years as VP, international affairs and business development at L.A.-based Artist Direct.

A former in-house engineer at New York's Power Station studios, Detroit-born Lampcov has produced or engineered recordings for such acts as Bruce Springsteen, Bryan Ferry, Peter Gabriel, the Pretenders and Johnny Marr.

Leiden, Netherlands-based Fintage Music is a division of Fintage House, which was established in 1986 to deliver financial solutions to the entertainment industries. Its music publishing administration clients include Duran Duran, REM, Alicia Keys, Fountains of Wayne, Robbie Williams and CBS Television.
