I have led on A&R, marketing – digital and physical, budgeting, contractual negotiation and licensing worldwide, artist liaison, dealing with agents and management, securing endorsements, branding and sponsorship with large entities, video, photo shoot and artwork commissioning, music placement and synchronisation with film, tv and advertising., My role also requires extensive travel inside the UK as well as Europe and the USA specifically.
