Sony BMG is eyeing S-Curve founder and chairman Steve Greenberg for the role of president of Columbia Records Group.

Sony BMG is eyeing S-Curve founder and chairman Steve Greenberg for the role of president of Columbia Records Group. Greenberg and Columbia representatives declined to comment, but sources say Greenberg's move would result in current Columbia Records Group president Will Botwin ascending to chairman of the unit.

The S-Curve roster, including multiple Grammy nominee Joss Stone and the Baha Men, would remain on the label, which has a partnership with EMI for many of its acts.

This would mark the second time this year that a Sony label has targeted Greenberg: Earlier this year, while Greenberg was still under contract to EMI, rumors swirled that he was headed to Epic as replacement for former president Polly Anthony. However, that post went to Epic GM Steve Barnett.
