After 18 years with the company, Warner Music U.K international director Hassan Choudhury will exit at the end of June.

Part of Warner's senior management team, Choudhury helped with the international development of acts such as Enya, Cher, Muse, the Darkness, David Gray, New Order and the Streets.

In a memo to staff, Warner Music U.K. chairman Nick Phillips thanked Hass for his "valuable contribution" and said Choudhury "wishes to develop his career further in a commercial capacity. Consequently, he feels that the time is right to seek opportunities outside of the company."
