EMI Music South East Asia is waving goodbye to two of its key executives.

The company's president/COO Paul Robinson will exit at the end of July to "pursue other ventures," the music major said today.

In addition, Hans Ebert, executive director for EMI Music South East Asia, will depart on July 31 for reasons not disclosed.

In a statement issued today, EMI Music International chairman and CEO J.F. Cecillon, commented: "I would like to thank Paul and Hans for the significant contributions they have made and wish them every success in their new ventures."

Robinson became president and COO of EMI Music South East Asia in August 2004. He joined EMI U.K. in 1987 as management accountant at its international division. In 1995, he became finance director for Virgin U.K., a role he held for six years, before moving on to serve as COO of EMI Australia.

A former Billboard correspondent, Ebert joined EMI as executive director for the region in September 2002.

EMI says a further announcement on the management of the region will be made in due course.
