Jones is moving next to take up the role of vice-president of corporate communications and marketing at EMI Music Publishing.

This is the division that owns the copyright to more than 1m songs, including those by writers including Arctic Monkeys, Pharrell Williams and Amy Winehouse.

In his new role, Jones will report jointly to Roger Faxon, EMI Music Publishing chairman and CEO, and Leo Corbett, executive vice-president and chief financial officer. He will also work closely with Amanda Conroy, EMI Group senior vice-president of corporate communications, and her team in London and New York.

Faxon said: "We want to make sure we're communicating our strengths and achievements effectively to all current and potential clients, and to our incredible songwriters. Dylan's communications experience gained during more than 10 years in the entertainment business will be invaluable in helping us achieve this."

Before joining EMI Group in February 2005, Jones was head of music and public relations for digital audio broadcaster Music Choice Europe.

He joined Music Choice from MTV Networks UK, where he was communications manager.
