Mike is the new Managing Director of Warner/Chappell Music and former President of Music at Virgin/EMI. He was previously Managing Director of Columbia Records UK and Head of A&R at EMI Music Publishing.
Over his career Mike has signed Blur, Arctic Monkeys, Mark Ronson, Calvin Harris, The White Stripes, PJ Harvey, The Chemical Brothers, Arcade Fire, The Libertines and Gorillaz, as well as working with Kings of Leon, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Foo Fighters and Kasabian.
