1/11/21

Sony Music U.K. has promoted Amy Wheatley to MD and Negla Abdela to GM at Ministry of Sound. Both execs report to label President Dipesh Parmar

Wheatley, left, who joined Ministry of Sound in 2017 as General Manager, has overseen the label's growth, expansion of the roster and the integration of playlisting and compilations with Parmar, who was promoted to President in June.

Abdela, right, started at Ministry of Sound in 2015 as a Social Media Channel Manager before being promoted to Head of Digital in 2018. She has led the digital strategy across the label’s roster as well as the prominent Ministry of Sound playlist brand. 

Parmar said: “Negla’s digital nuance has helped Ministry excel in the world of online engagement and Amy is a leader in every sense. Her drive and passion for both the roster and the team makes her one of the most respected and dynamic executives in the business. We all share the same vision for the label and the artists we want to sign.”

Last year, the team at Ministry of Sound achieved success with a string of hits including SAINt JHn's "Roses," which was the third biggest selling single of 2020, Regard’s double-platinum "Ride It" and follow up record "Secrets," Doja Cat's "Say So," Paul Woolford & Diplo’s "Looking For Me," Sigala and James Arthur's "Lasting Lover" and Tate Mcrae's "You Broke Me First."
