Last July, Matador co-founder Chris Lombardi and key Beggars staff relocated from New York to Los Angeles. After a long search, they have finally found a permanent home for the West Coast office in Silver Lake at 2035 Hyperion Avenue. The office is headed up by Miwa Okumura, Beggars' Sr. VP West Coast Operations and Licensing. "With XL's London office as the model," says Okumura, "I have found the right space where our artists, staff, and visitors will feel comfortable and inspired. It took some time but the search has paid off."

Beggars Group Chairman Martin Mills stated: "It's a natural step in the continuing growth of our business in the USA to open a west coast office - whereas the heart of our American operation is in New York, there's a lot going on musically in California right now, and it makes sense to be present to connect with music people there."

The Beggars Group is one of the world's largest, fastest growing and most respected label groups, and is completely independent. It was founded by Mills in 1976 and he remains Chairman of The Group. Over the years, many of the world's most respected labels have joined the fold and today it is home to XL Recordings, Matador Records, 4AD and Rough Trade. Artists signed to the group's labels such as Vampire Weekend, Sonic Youth, Jarvis Cocker, The National, The Morning Benders, The xx, St. Vincent and The New Pornographers, have achieved both commercial success and wide critical acclaim.

The Beggars Group is based in London and has multiple offices in Europe, Canada and Asia, in addition to the US locations. Matador Records also has an office in Austin, Texas.
