EMI banks on Finkelstein

Exec to replace Morris as CFO

EMI has tapped Colin Finkelstein to be chief financial officer of its North American division, reporting to vice chairman and North America chief David Munns.

Based in EMI’s recently established downtown New York offices, Finkelstein will replace Justin Morris, who has been on loan from EMI imprint Capitol Records as interim financial chief for the past several months.

Finkelstein moves over to EMI from a stint as CFO and operating chief of Classic Media, a holding company for such family-skewed media properties as “Casper the Friendly Ghost,” “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “The Lone Ranger.” He will retain his seat on Classic Media’s board of directors while at EMI.

Before that, he was financial chief at children’s publisher Golden Books Family Entertainment. Exec’s latest move is also a homecoming of sorts: from 1987 to 1996, Finkelstein worked at EMI Music, finishing out his tour as veepee of finance and controller.
