Sony BMG Music Entertainment has named its new global marketing team, which will work the company's repertoire around the world.

This new operational structure -- dubbed the Global Marketing Group -- is the brainchild of New York-based Sony BMG executive VP/chief marketing officer Tim Prescott. He describes the specialized marketing unit, which has staff in all the main regions, as a tool to support all the repertoire centers and operating companies in the world.

"In today's fast moving music world, there is no longer any such thing as an isolated, local market," Prescott says. "With this in mind, we've appointed this new team as a unified group capable of creating cohesive, fully integrated global marketing plans for the benefit of our artists and projects."

The team comprises a series of newly appointed executives. Moving to London is Tim Delaney, who has been named senior VP, global marketing, Europe. Until the merger, Delaney served as senior VP, international at the RCA Music Group in New York, where he oversaw international activities at Arista, J Records and RCA. In his new role, he reports to Prescott and oversees all of Sony BMG's global marketing activities in Europe, as well as serving as a key liaison between Sony BMG U.K. and global marketing.

In New York, former Sony Music International VP, international marketing, Daniel Levy has been named VP, global marketing, responsible for developing global marketing initiatives together with the Sony Music Label Group U.S., as well as handling marketing for Wind-Up artists. Also in New York, Ryan Wright has been appointed VP, global marketing, in charge of repertoire signed to BMG Label Group U.S. He held a similar position at BMG.

Also reporting to New York are two senior VPs of global marketing -- Luana Pagani for the Latin region and and Cate Smith in Asia/Pacific. They are respectively based in Miami and Sydney. In Tokyo, Daniel DiCicco has been named VP, global marketing, Japan.
