Warner Music Group Expands Nashville, Tennessee, Operations
WMG will bring positions in its U.S. finance team, which will now be located in Nashville. The company has recently leased offices downtown at Nashville City Center. After undergoing renovations, WMG’s new Nashville office will open in mid-2017. WMG’s longstanding presence on Music Row will remain at its current location.
“As we all know, Nashville is not only home to the best artists and songwriters in the world, but it has a vibrant and growing economy. The top talent in the world can be found here, our company already has a strong presence in the community, and the City and State have been tremendous at helping us establish our new location downtown,” Chairman/CEO of Warner Music Nashville said. “Nashville is the perfect home for Warner Music’s newly created division, and I look forward to welcoming our colleagues to Music City.”
“Warner Music is already synonymous with Nashville’s storied music heritage,” Governor Bill Haslam said. “Its labels have deep roots in Nashville with the seminal recordings of Willie Nelson and Emmylou Harris, as well as modern stars like Blake Shelton, Brett Eldredge and others. Warner Music is one of the world’s most recognizable brands in the music industry and a perfect complement to the host of entertainment businesses that call Tennessee home. I’d like to thank Warner Music for its investment in Nashville as we move closer to making Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”
“Tennessee is already home to the world’s most iconic entertainment brands,” Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd said. “Warner Music’s decision to expand its finance teams in Nashville is further validation of our state’s global appeal in the music and entertainment industry. The music industry supports more than 56,000 jobs in the Nashville area and has a $10 billion economic impact on the region annually. Warner Music’s commitment only solidifies Nashville’s position as a global entertainment capital. “
“TVA and Nashville Electric Service congratulate Warner Music on its decision to locate and create new job opportunities in Nashville,” TVA Senior Vice President of Economic Development John Bradley said. “We are privileged to partner with the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce, the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, and Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development to assist in the growth of companies like Warner Music in the Valley.”
