BMG appoints Dominique Casimir to oversee Australian repertoire team
This is part of the expansion of her role to also take responsibility for its repertoire operations in Latin America, including Brazil and Mexico, China and Hong Kong.
BMG’s Berlin-based CEO Hartwig Masuch, whom Casimir continues to report to, said, “Dominique has done an excellent job in developing our repertoire operation in Continental Europe.
“With her deep understanding of BMG’s distinct culture and business model, I am confident she will help us build further scale in territories across the world.”
Added Casimir, “I am excited to be given the opportunity to further develop BMG’s business across these diverse territories, some of them with very strong domestic markets.
“By further strengthening international cooperation and making use of parallels in language and genre, we will develop synergies and nurture growth across borders.”
Casimir joined BMG in 2008 and is responsible for signing and promoting artist and songwriter clients across 15 territories in Europe, including France, Spain, Italy and Scandinavia.
Under her leadership, BMG recently expanded into live music in Germany, with a plan to offer artists a new alternative to the established live promotion industry.
Together the territories now overseen by Casimir account for around a third of BMG’s global revenues, which according to MBW hit $308m in the first six months of 2020.
