ZURICH, 9 APRIL 2002  – Emmanuel de Buretel, chairman and CEO of EMI Recorded Music Continental Europe, has today confirmed Erwin Bach in the newly established non-executive role of chairman EMI Recorded Music Switzerland, and has appointed Bart Cools to succeed Bach as managing director of the company with responsibility for both Capitol Records and Virgin Records.

Cools, reporting directly to de Buretel, will assume full day-to-day responsibility for the operations of the company.

Bach moved from Capitol Records Germany (formerly EMI Electrola Germany) in 1995 where as divisional managing director of EMI Germany he was instrumental in developing local superstar acts like Herbert Grönemeyer and BAP and international acts like Paul McCartney, Pet Shop Boys, Tina Turner, Queen, Pink Floyd and many more in Germany.

Cools was appointed managing director of Virgin Records Belgium in 2001 having transferred from EMI International Marketing in the UK where he was director, European repertoire. From 1996 to 2001 he was international marketing manager for Virgin Records in the UK.  During this time he worked with many key artists including Massive Attack, Chemical Brothers and the Spice Girls. Cools originally joined Capitol Records in Belgium in 1991, holding various marketing and promotions roles, culminating in head of marketing and A&R for the company.

de Buretel said: "I am delighted that we will continue to have Erwin's involvement in  in Switzerland in this chairman role. His extensive knowledge, skills and contacts will ensure that Bart gets the fullest support during this transitional period. Bart's international experience within the group combined with his deep knowledge of continental markets will be extremely valuable for the new challenges the reshaped business will be facing."

Bach said: "Teaming with Bart will give us even more strength to position EMI Recorded Music Switzerland as a leading music company in this country."

Cools said: "I am very excited about my challenging new role in Switzerland and looking forward to working with the team responsible for EMI Switzerland's outstanding results over the last few years. As a Belgian, I'm well accustomed to living and working in a diverse, multi-cultural and multi-lingual society and I'm sure that this, combined with my international marketing experience, will add to the considerable strength's of EMI in Switzerland."
