NEW LEADERSHIP AT ATLANTIC U.K.
12/17/19

Ed Howard and Briony Turner are Ben Cook's successors at Atlantic Records U.K., becoming co-Presidents of the Warner label in January. Turner, who joined Atlantic in 2009, is upped from Co-Head of A&R, while Howard is currently MD of Asylum Records U.K.

Together, the duo will assume responsibility for the full Atlantic Records U.K. portfolio, overseeing the creative and strategic direction of the company as well as the implementation of campaigns for its roster of U.K., U.S., and international artists. They replace Ben Cook who exited abruptly in October.

Tony Harlow, incoming Chairman & CEO of Warner Music U.K., said, “From its inception in the States over seven decades ago, to the creation of the first stand-alone Atlantic Records U.K. company in 2004, the label has been guided by A&R-driven, independent-spirited leaders.

"Briony and Ed are carrying on that tradition with enormous success, time and time again showing that they can spot truly original talent and develop global superstars. Their artists break the mold, transcend boundaries, and drive the conversation. They are brilliantly suited to take this culture-shifting label into the future.”
