Narada Productions Inc., a division of EMI, has named Steve Pedo as CFO.

Pedo joins the company from BMG, where he had been since 1981, most recently as director of finance and operations in Brazil.

In his new post, he will oversee all financial aspects of Narada, which comprises the Narada, Higher Octave, Real World and Back Porch labels.

Pedo will be based at Narada's Milwaukee headquarters, reporting to president/CEO Wesley Van Linda and, on a functional basis, to EMI Music North America CFO Colin Finkelstein.
