Magnus Ribbeklint - “Jag vill tacka Jonas Siljemark och hela det nordiska Warner-teamet för deras support. Det har varit ett stort privilegium att arbeta med dem de senaste fem åren. Jag har haft nöjet att få arbeta med några av de största artisterna I en tid när Norden har varit pionjärer i en grundläggande förvandling av musikindustrin. Jag har haft äran att jobba med svenska artister som Håkan Hellström, Laleh, Little Jinder, Lykke Li, Miriam Bryant, Måns Zelmerlöw, Nause, Otto Knows, Rhys och Sabina Ddumba, liksom nordiska stjärnor som Alma, Christopher och Julie Bergan. Norden kommer alltid att vara en viktig repertoarkälla för ett globalt bolag som vårt och jag tror att vi kommer att få fortsätta att se fantastiska artister och musik från vår region resa runt jorden."

Ribbeklint will work alongside the award-winning teams for Promo, headed by Damian Christian, and A&R – both will continue to report directly to Cook.

Magnus Ribbeklint - “Jag är väldigt glad och stolt över att bli en av Atlantic UK. Det är tveklöst en av de coolaste och mest pulserande etiketterna i världen, och hem för så många fantastiska artister. En av Bens många styrkor som VD är att han är en sann musikperson, det är den artistfokuserade inställningen som gör Atlantic till en hub för spännande talang. Tillsammans är vi bestämda i inställningen att leverera framtidsfokuserade globala kampanjer för en roster i världsklass."
