Sarah Wilson to oversee TuneCore in Australia to build roster & partnerships
Most recently Universal Music UK vice president of international marketing, London-based Wilson also has the UK, New Zealand and Ireland operations for TuneCore in her charge.
She will focus on managing and building the company’s artist roster, while seeking partnerships and opportunities for growth.
She reports Faryal Khan-Thompson, vice president of international.
Wilson said she is thrilled to take on the role at a dynamic and future-facing company.
“Coming off the back of a growth phase during lockdown there is so much potential for continued expansion in the territories I’m overseeing.
“I expect the current business landscape to change rapidly over the next few years. I’m grateful to Faryal and the team at TuneCore/Believe for inviting me into their fold and can’t wait to dive in.”
Khan-Thompson added that she’s looking forward to working with Wilson to build TuneCore’s global footprint.
Wilson earlier spent 13 years at Beggars Group, finally reaching the role of director of international, and working with Adele, Radiohead, The National, MIA and Bon Iver, across labels XL, 4ad, Rough Trade, Matador and Young.
