New offices will access the city’s thriving music industry
Sony Music Group (SMG) has officially opened its flagship Southeast Asia headquarters in Singapore. The new office is now the main umbrella for SMG companies, housing Sony Music Entertainment, Sony Music Publishing, and artist and label services company The Orchard, as well as Sony Interactive Entertainment.
The new HQ will allow Sony to leverage the talent pool and technology ecosystem in Singapore, including specialists in pan-regional marketing, data analytics, human resources, finance, digital innovation, business development, A&R, and publicity.
Shridhar Subramaniam, President of Corporate Strategy and Market Development for Asia and the Middle East said: “Sony Music has a rich history of discovering and supporting some of the most iconic artists and impactful music originating from Asia, and it is fitting that Singapore, a technology, business and arts hub that’s long been considered a gateway to the rest of Asia, is the base for the next stage of our growth.”
Carol Ng, President of Asia for Sony Music Publishing, added: “We are excited to have moved into this new office with the rest of Sony Music Group in Singapore. There is a richness of culture in Asia that has inspired countless songwriters spanning genres and generations. We are on the lookout for the next generation of Asian song-writing talent to enhance our existing roster, deliver new music to our audiences and take Asian music global.”
