After Sony purchased EMI Music Publishing for $2.2 billion earlier this year, it seems that Sony’s Nashville publishing arm is looking to expand its offices.
“We are looking at all options,” Jimmy Asci, a New York-based spokesman, told the Nashville Business Journal. “This is all a result of the EMI acquisition. Our company has grown tremendously, and as a result we are going to have significantly more people in Nashville because, for Sony/ATV, our worldwide administration and many finance functions are headquartered in Nashville. The space that those functions currently exist in are not big enough to handle the additional headcount.”
Sony/ATV is considering several options to increase their space, including leasing current office space and the possibility of building a larger office facility in, or near downtown Nashville. Sony/ATV’s finance and administration operations are currently located at 65 Music Square West on Music Row.
Asci said Sony/ATV’s creative division, led by Troy Tomlinson, would stay in its current location at 8 Music Square West.
