The appointment comes as Verve Records’ 23-year-old jazz emerging artist, Samara Joy won the Grammy for Best New Artist, alongside commercial success for the division’s recent signings.

She returned to UMG in 2012 as part of the classics international team working on artist campaigns including Tori Amos and Joseph Calleja. She also led the international campaign for Andrea Bocelli’s Grammy-nominated Cinema, including Ariana Grande performing “E Piu Ti Penso” with Bocelli, which has been viewed over 60 million times.

Since then, she moved to the Global Priorities team as Senior Marketing Director, working with Capitol, Def Jam, EMI, Interscope, Island, Polydor, and Republic on worldwide campaigns for The Weeknd, Rihanna, Grande, Sting, Billie Eilish, and Sam Smith. She was also a part of Eilish’s Where We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, campaign, which went on to win five Grammy Awards.

In her new role, Teh will oversee artists from Deutsche Grammophon, Decca, Verver, Hyperion, and ECM, including Lisa Davidsen, Norah Jones, Lang Lang, Jon Batiste, and more.
