Warner Music taps Emmer sr. biz veep

Warner Music Group has tapped Bob Emmer as senior veep of business affairs. In the newly created post, Emmer, a former exec veep at Rhino Entertainment, will have a broad spectrum of duties, including acquisitions and strategic alliances.

The new gig for Emmer, a top-drawer legal eagle and dealmaker, marks the latest hiring for Warner Music Group by chairmen/co-CEOs Bob Daly and Terry Semel. The duo are expected to bring at least one more exec into the fold at that level. Record producer David Foster was given senior veep stripes in August.

“Working with Rhino’s co-founders, Bob has been instrumental in building that company into the preeminent re-issue and compilation label in the industry,” said Daly. “That experience, combined with his many years of involvement in a wide array of music and entertainment ventures, will make him a valuable asset.”

Emmer will report to Jerry Gold, exec veep and CFO of Warner Music Group.

For the past three years Emmer has been shepherding deals for the Rhino Records and Atlantic Group joint venture company, which he joined in 1987.
