SONY/ATV MUSIC PUBLISHING

GUY MOOT

President, U.K. and European creative

GUY HENDERSON

Executive VP of international

When Sony/ATV took over as administrator for EMI Music Publishing, the company began a two-year integration plan that pre-occupied all components of the two companies, even as they maintained business as usual, plugging away at licensing opportunities for their songwriters. After “integrating the two companies, we are starting to reap the benefits,” Guy Moot says of the company that generated $633 million in revenue last year, including an administration fee of about 15% of EMI’s revenue. The company maintains 34 offices in 24 countries, so while it has local teams sifting through opportunities in various markets, it also has a central team to coordinate priorities as well, Moot says. Guy Henderson adds that the two parts of the company “have come together really well.” —Ed Christman
