LONDON, UK (CelebrityAccess) – According to Music Week, EMI UK has promoted Fay Hoyte to marketing director.
Hoyte began her career on East West’s street team before moving on to work for Ministry Of Sound. She then served at Virgin and Sony prior to joining Virgin EMI in 2014.
In her new role, Hoyte will report to managing director Clive Cawley, and continue to work across Def Jam projects including Pusha T, while also growing EMI imprints Straight Forward Music and Lost Ones.
Of the promotion, Hoyte said: “I definitely want to make my mark on the role. Clive Cawley has been a brilliant boss and has always trusted me and allowed me to develop. He knows he can leave me to handle any situation.”
Virgin EMI president Ted Cockle added: “Fay has a wonderful understanding of everything historically within American hip-hop and R&B culture and is completely on trend with the frontline of new British urban space as well.
“She’s been around mainstream pop stuff, dealing with Emeli Sandé and Shawn Mendes from the very start. She’s marvellous with that.”
