In doing this, I was incredibly fortunate to collaborate with such wonderful colleagues and friends at both BMG and Bertelsmann, to represent some phenomenal music, and to work with great industry partners. It’s such an exciting time for the music industry and I look forward to working with all of you again in the future. Please do keep in touch.”
