BMG Benelux managing director Rob Schouw will be appointed MD of Sony BMG Benelux, Billboard.biz has learned.

Schouw will report to Maarten Steinkamp, head of Sony BMG's operations in Continental Europe and chairman/CEO for Sony BMG Germany/Switzerland/Austria.

Sources indicate that Sony Music Benelux president Patrick Decam will step down. A Sony BMG spokesman declined to confirm if Decam was going to leave the company.

In 2002, Sony Music consolidated its operations in the Netherlands and Belgium and named Decam to the role of president of Sony Music Benelux. He was previously MD of Sony Music Holland and senior VP of the Benelux.
