Sunset Island Music Adds Angela "Gigi" de Lugo To Advisory Board

Sunset Island Group announced that it has added Angela "Gigi" de Lugo to the company's Advisory Board of its wholly owned subsidiary, Sunset Island Music.

Miss de Lugo, the daughter of former U.S. Congressman, Ron de Lugo, is currently owner and president of Tropic Heat Studios out of Nashville, Tenn., where she has a long and extensive career in the music and film industries. To date, some of Gigi's music industry achievements and awards include Gold and Platinum albums, BMI's #1 Award, #1 Video and the R&R #1, Arista Record's A-Team Award, and the achievement as an indie music publisher of a song named among the Top 500 Country Songs of All Time, Love A Little Stronger by Diamond Rio.

Warner/Chappell UK Appoints Mike Sault As Director Of A&R

Warner/Chappell UK announced the promotion of Mike Sault to the position of Director of A&R. Reporting to Richard Manners, Managing Director of Warner/Chappell UK, Sault will assume responsibility for all new and current signings, as well as catalog and standard repertoire. In this newly-created role, Sault will closely co-ordinate strategies to explore the full potential of the roster across all genres while at the same time retaining a focus on signing and developing the very best songwriting talent, both emerging and established.

Sault will also be charged with amplifying the success of Warner/Chappell songwriters beyond the UK, working closely with Warner/Chappell's global network of affiliates as well as external partners to find opportunities in other key markets around the world.

SoundExchange Announces New President

SoundExchange's Board of Directors announced that long-time Executive Vice President and General Counsel Michael Huppe will be the nonprofit's new President. The decision comes as part of a planned leadership transition that began in mid-2010.

Huppe succeeds former head John Simson, who announced his intention in July to return to creative work, ending his ten-year stewardship of the non-profit he had led since its inception. SoundExchange's Board requested Simson finish out the year while it sought a new leader.

Huppe pointed to the organization's record-high distributions in 2010 as evidence of the group's expanding role and importance in the industry. He envisions a much stronger and broader role for SoundExchange in the future, leveraging upon the unique position the organization has as an umbrella organization representing almost all constituencies that contribute to the business of sound recordings (including not only artists & labels, but also managers, unions, music groups, and related associations). One of his top priorities will be managing the business that has come with SoundExchange's explosive growth, including assembling a world-class technical team to scale SoundExchange's digital infrastructure for the quarter billion a year it now processes.

He takes over the mantle from Campbell Smith who has resigned after five years in charge to focus on his artist management and touring businesses. RIANZ president Adam Holt says Caddick has all the credentials to lead the industry body.
