LIEBERBERG TO LEAD SONY MUSIC IN EUROPE, AFRICA

Rob Stringer has tapped former Universal Music Germany chief Daniel Lieberberg to oversee Sony Music’s operations across Continental Europe and Africa with the exception of Spain and Portugal. He will be based in Berlin.

As President, Continental Europe and Africa, Sony Music Entertainment, Lieberberg will be responsible for breaking artists and driving strategic business initiatives across the territories within these regions.

“Not only does revolutionary music technology come from some of these countries, but the adage ‘hits can come from anywhere’ has never been truer, and Daniel is uniquely capable of building on this momentum for our company,” Sony Music CEO Stringer said.

A former booker and talent buyer, Lieberberg has been at Universal since 2002 and since 2014, overseen Universal Music Germany’s domestic business, including the Vertigo/Capitol and Polydor/Island labels. He was named head of the Vertigo label in 2008, and appointed to the Universal Music Germany Management Board in 2011.
