Scott Maclachlan, the artist manager who guided the rise of Lorde from a teenage talent to a global star, has been appointed senior VP of A&R at Warner Music Australasia.
Maclachlan is the co-founder and director of Saiko Management, a boutique music management firm with offices in Auckland and New York. In his new role, Maclachlan reports to Niko Nordström, president of Warner Music Australasia, and splits time between the music major’s Auckland and Sydney offices.
“I’m stoked to be joining Niko and the team at Warner Music Australasia,” comments Maclachlan in a statement. “The global streaming-driven music market creates amazing opportunities to break great artists from Australia and New Zealand around the world and that’s something I’m committed to doing over the coming years.”
