Kate Logan has been named Warner Music's new general counsel international, responsible for the major's legal and business affairs outside the U.S. 

Based in London, Logan will report to WMG executive vice president/general counsel Paul Robinson and work closely with the company's recorded music and publishing affiliates in Europe, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa. 

She replaces Chris Ancliff, who had been in the role since 2009 and played a key role in the divestment of Parlophone assets following Warner's acquisition in 2013 -- a process that was only completed late last year. Billboard understands that Ancliff left the label earlier this week by mutual consent.   

"Since joining us five years ago, Kate has done an exceptional job on multiple fronts -- becoming a trusted advisor to our international legal and business affairs team and building a reputation in the industry as a talented executive with great energy and integrity," said Robinson announcing Logan's "well-deserved" promotion. 

Logan, whose most recent position with Warner was SVP of legal affairs, called the label "a very exciting place to be during this transformational time in the music industry."

"We're finding innovative ways to expand global opportunities for our artists and songwriters, while growing our international footprint by entering fresh territories, opening up new licensing avenues and pioneering digital initiatives," said the exec, who spent seven years at EMI Music prior to joining Warner in 2013. 

She was previously an associate at international law firm Allen & Overy, having begun her career at CMS Cameron McKenna.
