The development of truly international stars is one of our highest priorities at Atlantic, especially as new technology and the global media explosion continue to break down boundaries between people, countries, and cultures. Tom's years of experience working in and running the international department at a major label and his expertise in breaking artists on a global level are second to none. I am very happy to welcome Tom to the Atlantic family, and I know he has great things in store for us around the world."
