No. 25: Guy Moot & Carianne Marshall | Power 100



Incoming co-chair/CEO, Warner/Chappell Music Publishing


Co-chair/COO, Warner/Chappell Music Publishing

REVENUE GREW 14.2 PERCENT: "It has been quite a shake-up," says Marshall of the music publishing musical chairs that have her and Moot (as of April) running Warner/Chappell. Marshall landed at the company after SONGS Music Publishing, where she was a partner, sold to Kobalt. Moot comes to Warner/Chappell from Sony/ATV, where he is president of worldwide creative, as Marshall's former boss Jon Platt takes the reins from departing Sony/ATV chairman/CEO Martin Bandier. All that churn hasn't hurt the bottom line: Warner/Chappell -- which has Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, Bruno Mars and Katy Perry on its roster -- saw publishing revenue grow 14.2 percent to $653 million over the previous year, while operating income rose from $81 million to $84 million.
