Strang Steps Down From Warner Music Group Board, Three Added

Cameron Strang will exit the Warner Music Group Board of Directors after six years of service, according to an announcement made Tuesday (Oct. 3) by Warner Music Group.

Three new members will join its Board of Directors: Jon Platt, Max Lousada and Noreena Hertz. Effective Oct. 1, Lousada and Platt, respectively the heads of WMG’s Recorded Music and Music Publishing divisions, have expanded their leadership roles as Board members, helping to chart the company’s future direction.

Previously serving from 2014-2016, international economist Noreena Hertz rejoined the Board effective Sept. 15. As a result of the changes, the WMG Board of Directors increases from 11 to 13 members.

“As the creative leaders of WMG’s two major divisions, Max and Jon are excellent additions to our Board,” said Len Blavatnik, Chairman & Founder of Access Industries. “I am also pleased to welcome Noreena back onto the Board, joining an impressive group of experts across business, technology, entertainment and media. I, along with Steve and the other directors, would like to thank Cameron Strang for his service on the Board; we are deeply appreciative of his many contributions.”

“I am very pleased to welcome these three leaders to our Board of Directors,” said Steve Cooper, CEO, WMG. “With Max now bringing his entrepreneurial vision to our entire Recorded Music operation, and Jon leading Warner/Chappell to new heights around the world, they will bring invaluable insight to our Board. I’m also delighted that we’ll once again draw on Noreena’s unique global perspective and experience, which were so welcome during her previous tenure.”
