Jubelirer Is COOL, and She's Now Also COO

Michelle Jubelirer is now Capitol Music Group’s Chief Operating Officer. The news comes via an announcement from CMG head coach Steve Barnett, Jubelirer’s once and future boss, as well as her biggest fan.

In her elevated position, according to the release, Jubelirer will focus on the company’s business strategy and development and expand her role as a senior liaison to UMG. She’ll continue to work closely with Barnett and other members of his team to set the creative direction of CMG and oversee the management and day-to-day operations of the company and its labels.

“Michelle has been an enormous asset to our company, our artists and staff since joining us at the very beginning of our rebirth more than two years ago,” said Barnett. “Her background as an advocate for the artist community is essential to our forward-thinking approach to A&R and for attracting both established and developing talent to the label. Furthermore, she helps ensure that our agreements are artist-friendly, smart and fair for all. Michelle has played a major role in our revitalization and success, and her promotion to COO is well-deserved and reflects her stature in the company. I congratulate her and look forward to working with her for many years to come.”

Jubelirer crafted a quote as well. “I am truly thankful to Steve for his ongoing support and encouragement, and for entrusting me with these expanded responsibilities,” she offered. “His incredible drive, vision and business acumen continue to inspire me every day. I’m excited to be working with him and his talented executive team—Greg Thompson, Scott Greer and Geoff Harris—as we lead our dynamic staff to achieve great results for our artists and their music. My thanks, as well, to Lucian Grainge, Boyd Muir, Michelle Anthony and everyone at UMG, who enable us to set the bar high in every aspect of our business.”
