EMI Music Denmark has named Michael Wermuth as its new managing director, effective immediately.

He will report to Åsa Torneryd, MD of EMI Scandinavia. Danish operations have been run from London via Stockholm since the former MD Lars Toft stepped down in June 2006.

He has served as sales manager at EMI Denmark since 1999 and will continue to be responsible for that segment of the business.

Prior to joining EMI, Wermuth briefly held a position in the non-music retail sector after leaving a job as sales manager of BMG.
