Herb Agner, formerly senior director of marketing, has been named vice president, EMI music catalog marketing, and Kenny Di Dia, former veep of marketing for Warner Bros. Records, has been tapped VP marketing. Phil Quartararo, executive VP of EMI Music North America, made the announcements.

Michels was previously vice president of creative affairs at 20th Century Fox Music, where she oversaw the music for features produced by 20th Century Fox, Fox 2000 and Fox Searchlight. She worked on such projects as “Daredevil,” “Down With Love,” “Unfaithful,” “Like Mike” and “The Banger Sisters.” Before joining Fox, she was director of soundtracks at Capitol Records. Michels will be based in Los Angeles and report to Cynthia Sexton, senior VP, strategic marketing/licensing.

Agner, who will report to Ronn Werre, senior VP, sales & catalog marketing, has been with EMI since 1998 and has developed CD, DVD, and DVD-Audio releases from the Beach Boys, David Bowie, the Band, the James Bond franchise and others.

Di Dia will work closely with EMI’s North American labels and the EMM sales organization to lead EMM’s efforts to support new releases and developing artists through promotional tie-ins with traditional and nontraditional retail, as well as with sports and lifestyle affiliations. While at Warner, Di Dia created the Street Network, a street team with more than 70,000 members that worked exclusively with Warner Bros. artists. He is based in Los Angeles and reports to Quartararo.
