New EMI tune for Quartararo

Exec VP to focus on EMI N.A.'s sales, catalog operations

Phil Quartararo, who most recently helped turn the ship at Warner Bros. Records, will become executive vice president of EMI’s North American operations, reporting to worldwide vice chairman and North America chief David Munns (Daily Variety, Aug. 14).

Move had been rumored since shortly after Quartararo departed Warners last May, but negotiations are said to have shifted into high gear over the past few weeks. Exec will focus on EMI N.A.’s sales and catalog operations, and act as an adviser to other divisions.

Move is a homecoming of sorts for Quartararo: He helped to set up Virgin Records America in 1986, and worked there for more than a decade. He became chief executive of the label just as it was acquired by EMI in 1992.
