Elizabeth Sobol to head Decca Label Group

Artist manager named president-CEO of UMG's classical division

Universal Music Group has appointed noted artist manager Elizabeth Sobol as president-CEO of its Decca Label Group USA.

Based in New York, Sobol will begin her new role on April 15. She will oversee UMG’s classical imprints, Deutsche Grammophon, Decca and Mercury Classics.

She will report to Max Hole, chairman-CEO of UMG International, who was himself elevated to his new position earlier this month (Daily Variety, Jan. 8).

Sobol comes to UMG from performing arts management firm IMG Artists North and South America, where she served as managing director. The company represents more than 500 top international classical, jazz, world music and dance artists, including Itzhak Perlman, Joshua Bell, Evgeny Kissin and the Emerson String Quartet.

Hole said in a statement that Sobol’s “passion for music, innovation and creativity make her the ideal choice to develop the Deutsche Grammophon, Decca and Mercury Classics’ labels in the US.”
