Danny Strick has been named president of Sony/ATV Music Publishing U.S., effective immediately.

Strick's appointment comes as Richard Rowe exits his post as president of Sony/ATV Music Publishing worldwide, which he has held since 1993. Rowe will continue to work with the company as a consultant. Sony/ATV is not expected to name presidents in other territories.

Strick will report to Sony/ATV chairman David Hockman in the New York-based position. He will work with Hockman to oversee the company's U.S. operations, with the exception of Nashville. Operations in that city remain headed by Sony/ATV Music Publishing Nashville president/CEO Donna Hilley, who continues to report to Hockman.

Strick joins from Maverick Records, where he had been a senior A&R executive since 2000, working with the likes of Michelle Branch and Alanis Morissette. From 1996 to 2000, Strick was president of BMG Songs, which he joined as VP/GM in 1989; he has also worked at publishers that include Jobete, United Artists Music, CBS Songs and MCA Music Publishing.
