Motown Records is finally making its move into the U.K. with the launch of a new label, led by Rob Pascoe.
Announced Monday (Sept. 14), Motown Records U.K. will have its own dedicated team and resources, and an appetite for signing local artists. The first executive appointments are managing director Pascoe and marketing director Afryea Henry-Fontaine, both of whom are Universal Music Group stalwarts, with more recruits to be announced in the coming weeks.
The new company is spearheaded by Motown president Ethiopia Habtemariam and EMI Records’ recently-appointed president Rebecca Allen, a 20-year UMG veteran and former Billboard Women In Music honoree.
