Jack White taps BMG topper Stein

Music co. looks to expand prod'n, artists portfolio

German music group Jack White Prods. has appointed former BMG topper Thomas Stein CEO with an eye toward expanding its production and artist portfolio.

“Given Stein’s international contacts and know-how, Jack White Prods. now has excellent opportunities to considerably increase its market share in the music business,” the Berlin-based company said Tuesday.

Company founder and current chief exec Jack White will remain on the management board when Stein takes over March 1, concentrating on music production.

Stein became head of BMG Ariola Musik for Germany, Switzerland and Austria, transforming the German-language division into the market leader for national repertoire with musicians such as Wildecker Herzbuben, Peter Maffay and Silbermond.

He also oversaw internationally successful acts such as Modern Talking, Snap, Lou Bega, *NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys.

In 2001, Stein took over the coordination of all European BMG companies as exec VP for worldwide marketing and A & R for BMG Entertainment.

Stein left BMG in 2004 and started his own music production company, which will now be folded into Jack White.

Stein was a recurring judge on RTL Television’s hit “Pop Idol” show “Deutschland sucht den Superstar.”
