Warner Music Group has elevated longtime exec Jon Glass to senior vp, head of digital legal affairs at the major label, it was announced Tuesday. Glass takes over for Ron Wilcox, who is retiring after a decade at the company.
As head of digital legal affairs, Glass will work closely with WMG’s business development team and — as his title suggests — lead the label group’s legal efforts across various digital projects. He’ll report to Paul Robinson, WMG's evp and general counsel.
"Jon is the kind of person you want on your side of the negotiating table," said Robinson. "He’s a savvy and level-headed deal-maker with a wealth of experience in all things digital. He sees the big picture and also the details. I’ve watched Jon lead the charge on many of our most strategic and cutting-edge deals, and I know he’ll make a great leader as we navigate uncharted territory and explore fresh opportunities for our artists and labels."
