UK Menu Sony/ATV Promotes Dan Nelson to SVP, International

Sony/ATV Music Publishing has promoted Dan Nelson to Senior Vice President, International, based in the company’s London office.

Nelson, who has been with Sony/ATV for 10 years, works across the company’s operations outside the Americas and UK, including in continental Europe, South East Asia, Russia, Australia, India, Africa, Turkey, Israel and the Middle East. He reports to Guy Henderson, President, International.

Guy Henderson said: “Dan and I have worked together for many years, both in records and publishing. Not only therefore does Sony/ATV benefit from Dan’s wide industry experience but also from his smart, astute and practical approach to our business operations. Dan and the strong team he has assembled have made a major contribution to Sony/ATV’s growth to its position as the world’s leading music publisher.”  

Dan Nelson said: “As chance would have it, Marty Bandier and I started at Sony/ATV on the same day, so as you can imagine it’s been an exhilarating journey over the last 10 years. It’s been an honour to be part of the transformation that has shaped Sony/ATV into the leading music publisher it is today.”

Dan Nelson joined Sony/ATV in April 2007 as International Finance Director, having relocated from South Africa.

Throughout his time with the company he has continued to take on a more strategic role across all its international businesses while remaining hands on from all operational and financial aspects. In 2014 he was promoted to the role of Vice President, International in recognition of his wider role in the company following the takeover of EMI Music Publishing.  

Apart from Sony/ATV’s interests in territories in Europe, Asia, Australia and South Africa, Nelson has also been part of the team which has developed the company’s business in Russia, China and India. He has been involved with all its major acquisitions across its international markets and was an integral member of the Sony/ATV team which obtained regulatory approval for the acquisition of EMI Music Publishing. He is also a member of Sony/ATV’s digital team, playing a leading role in its digital initiative in Europe and other international markets.

He previously held the position of Finance Director at Sony Music South Africa.
