Label veteran Emma Greengrass will report directly to Wildlife CEO Ian McAndrew, whose company's roster includes Arctic Monkeys, Miles Kane and Royal Blood
By IQ on 02 Aug 2016
London-based artist management company Wildlife Entertainment has appointed Emma Greengrass managing director.
Greengrass, who was most recently UK label head at Caroline International, previously consulted for Wildlife on releases by Travis and I Am Kloot, and praises the company – which represents Arctic Monkeys, The Last Shadow Puppets, Royal Blood and Miles Kane – as having an roster that’s “second to none in the UK management world”.
Prior to working at Caroline, Greengrass headed up Oasis’s Big Brother Records from 2000 until the band’s split in 2009.
Wildlife CEO Ian McAndrew says: “I am delighted that Emma Greengrass has accepted the position of managing director at Wildlife. Emma brings to Wildlife a wealth of experience and is hugely respected and admired within the artist and label community.
“Leaving Caroline was an incredibly hard decision to make… However, the opportunity of working with the artists and team at Wildlife Entertainment was too good to turn down”
“She has helped manage and coordinate numerous successful campaigns for some of our most revered artists and bands. Her exceptional talent and experience will be a huge asset to our artists and team.”
Greengrass adds: “Leaving Caroline was an incredibly hard decision to make, as their team is, in my opinion, simply the best in the label services sector and they are, after only three years in business, providing a fantastic service to a large number of high-profile artists. However, the opportunity of working with the artists and team at Wildlife Entertainment was too good to turn down.”
McAndrew was one of the four managers who launched the anti-touting FanFair initiative at Somerset House last month.
