After more than eight years spent helping grow Warner Music Group's (WMG) global footprint, the company's CEO of international and global commercial services Stu Bergen announced today (Nov. 9) that he will step down at the end of January 2021.
"These last eight years overseeing International have undoubtedly been the highlight of my career," Bergen wrote in an internal note obtained by Billboard. "It's been a wild and wonderful journey as we have returned to growth and possibility. You have accomplished so much, and I know you will achieve much more."
The announcement caps a more than 14-year run at WMG for Bergen, who has worked in the international department since 2012 (when he was named executive vp, international and head of global marketing) and was promoted to his current role in 2016.
