Musical Chairs In Music Biz Continues At MCA

With all the changes in the executive suites of the big music companies this year, the business looks Like it’s taking its cues from the pop group Menudo. The latest company to shuffle its music division execs is MCA.

Recently installed MCA Music Entertainment Group chairman Doug Morris moved quickly last week to establish his own team. He named Mel Lewinter vice chairman, promoted Zach Horowitz to president and tapped Jay Boberg president of MCA Records, filling the post vacated Nov. 20 by Richard Palmese.

Lewinter – whose appointment continues the Warnerization of MCA Music (following the moves of Morris, Robert Krasnow, David Geffen and Mo Ostin, among others, to the MCA family), will be based in New York. Horowitz will remain ensconced at MCA’s Universal City headquarters.

A& R execs Ron Oberman and Denny Diante and East Coast exec Mickey Eichner stepped down Nov. 28.
