EMI Digital Chief Merrill To Exit

EMI Music announced today (3/23), that its President of Digital Music, Douglas Merrill will leave the company as its digital unit is integrated into its main operations. Formerly with Google, Inc., Merrill has been with EMI less than a year. EMI has promoted Cory Ondrejka to the newly created title of Executive Vice President of Digital Marketing. Ondrejka, a co-founder of virtual world Second Life, joined EMI as Senior VP of Digital Strategy in June 2008, two months after Merrill. As it folds its digital unit into its main operations, the London-based music giant said digital sales now make up more than 20% of its revenues.
