Hanson to leave EMI Music

Clasper takes over operational duties

Ian Hanson has ankled as chief operating officer of EMI Music, less than a year after he was promoted to the role.

Hanson’s operational responsibilities will be assumed on an interim basis by Mike Clasper, who joined the EMI investor board last month and who has been reviewing the development of EMI’s manufacturing, logistics and sales operations.

“With his experience of running international businesses at a very senior level, Mike will ably support the EMI recorded music business,” said EMI Group chairman Guy Hands, who has been critical of the way that senior management ran EMI before his investment outfit Terra Firma bought the company earlier this year.
