Cooper

CEO

Warner Music Group saw double-digit revenue growth through 2021, drawing income from platforms like Facebook, TikTok and Peloton that helped swell streaming revenue by 32.6% under the leadership of Cooper. An investment in Rotana Music expanded its footprint in the Middle East and North Africa, while closer to home, a couple of Warner Music alums beefed up its domestic roster. In June, WMG acquired 12Tone Music, launched by former Warner Music chief Doug Morris, whose roster includes Anderson .Paak, Dolly Parton and the 88rising posse. Then in August, longtime Warner act Madonna brought the three albums from her Interscope years over to WMG, parking the record and publishing rights of her entire catalog under one roof. The company continues to support diversity through its WMG Social Justice Fund.
