Raaij spins to Warner Music

Exec to oversee worldwide consolidation efforts

Warner Music Group has tapped former Universal exec Joseph “Jos” de Raaij as senior vice president of finance and comptroller, reporting to recently appointed exec VP and financial chief Helen Murphy.

The New York-based de Raaij will oversee Warner Music’s ongoing consolidation efforts worldwide, as well as accounting and royalties for the company’s labels, which include Warner Bros., Elektra, Atlantic and London-Sire.

Exec comes to Warner Music after spending six years as worldwide corporate controller at Universal Music Group (formerly Polygram), during which time he was integral in combining the accounting and royalty systems of Universal and Polygram, which was acquired by U. parent Seagram in 1998.

De Raaij joined Polygram in 1981 as director of consolidation, and later worked his way up through the financial department to CFO for Italy and Brazil.
