Sony Music UK has promoted Dipesh Parmar to president of Ministry of Sound Recordings, effective Monday (June 1).
Parmar has served as managing director of the venerable dance music label since it was acquired by Sony Music in 2016. During that time, and under the leadership of David Dollimore -- who previously served as president of both RCA UK and Ministry of Sound -- he has helped develop and launch the careers of artists like Sigala, DJ Fresh and London Grammar, and integrated playlisting and compilations into the frontline label's strategy.
In his new role, Parmar will report directly to Sony Music UK and Ireland chairman/CEO Jason Iley. Dollimore remains president of RCA UK.
