Meade’s corporate role made redundant at BMG

Roxy Meade, music and entertainment group BMG’s first head of corporate communications, has been made redundant eight months after being appointed.

Roxy Meade, music and entertainment group BMG’s first head of

corporate communications, has been made redundant eight months after

being appointed.



Meade was told by chairman John Preston that her role was no longer

necessary.



She was hired last June to manage communication with the company’s 500

employees and build BMG’s corporate image. At the time she said she

would represent BMG on a ’trade and City media level.’



Corporate PR will now be split between the PR chiefs at BMG’s two main

record labels. Chris Carr replaced Meade as head of press at Arista

Records, while RCA Records is close to appointing Amy Howard to the

role.



Meade is a well-established music specialist with 17 years

experience.



She formerly spent 16 months at Arista after leaving entertainment PR

agency Poole Edwards.



Prior to that she was a co-founder of Lipsey Meade with Judy Lipsey,

later to become Scott Riseman Lipsey Meade. She has continued to work

for one of Lipsey Meade’s first big clients Whitney Houston.



BMG International UK and Ireland is the national subsidiary of

Bertelsmann Music Group, a German owned company which has over 200 music

labels in 40 countries. This includes UK dance label Deconstruction and

classical music specialist BMG Conifer.
