Anthony new exec VP at Sony Music

Michele Anthony has been appointed exec VP of Sony Music, making her effectively second-in-command to president Tommy Mottola at the company.

Anthony will oversee the day-to-day operations and be involved in administration of all divisions within Sony Music, which includes such labels as Columbia and Epic, per the company.

She has been a senior VP at Sony since 1990, involved in the company’s deals with acts Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Aerosmith and Chris Whitley, as well as the “Singles” soundtrack.

The new title also makes Anthony one of the highest-ranking female exex in the recorded music business.

Anthony will continue to be involved in talent and touring development and family entertainment, and will be the exec liaison to Sony’s other companies.

“Michele has been a vital factor in Sony Music’s success–she has helped to rebuild and restructure the company,” said Mottola. “Her unique experience and abilities have garnered her respect from both the artistic and creative communities.”

Anthony was formerly a partner at the entertainment law firm of Manatt, Phelps, Rothenberg & Phillips, where her clients included Guns N’ Roses, Ozzy Osbourne and Sub Pop Records.
