BMG Nashville Executive VP Kos Weaver has exited the company as part of a reorganization, MusicRow has confirmed. Also exiting are three BMG support staffers; the move does not affect staff at BBR Music Group, or BMG’s royalties/copyright teams located in Nashville.
Weaver joined BMG in 2013, overseeing Nashville operations for BMG Publishing and Records, with a roster that has included Alabama, Brett Beavers, busbee, Clare Dunn, Danny Gokey, Hilary Lindsey, Buddy Miller, JD Souther and Jon Paul White.
Weaver’s career has also included VP roles at Disney Music Publishing and Warner Chappell Music.
“Kos’s success over the past years speaks for itself and we wish him well,” BMG says in a statement. “Nashville is a major growth market for BMG. The restructuring is consistent with our ongoing US strategy—maintaining our core strength and position in publishing while increasing our investment in writer-performers (case in point: Lewis Capaldi going to Number One in the US). We are now extending that approach to Nashville and it requires a different skillset and experience, hence the reorganization.”
