Dan Goldberg, senior vice president of Warner Music Artist Services (WMAS), is leaving the company after 12 years.
Goldberg has served as SVP of WMAS since March 2014, a role in which he oversaw Warner Music Group’s e-commerce, tour merchandising, VIP experiences, ticketing and fan club operations.
Goldberg announced the news of his departure in an email sent to colleagues today (June 28).
In the email, obtained by MBW, the executive writes that he will be pursuing an “exciting new opportunity” and that his last day at WMG is Friday (July 2).
Prior to his appointment as senior vice president of Warner Music Artist Services in March 2014, Goldberg served as vice president of 360 Operations, a role he started in February 2013.
He was previously Senior Director of New Business Development at Warner Music Group-owned Roadrunner Records for over three and a half years.
Prior to joining Roadrunner, New York-based Goldberg worked as an entertainment attorney with the law firm Davis.
His career also includes previous roles at Truth and Soul Records, Fabeats and Pilot Light, which he co-founded.
“I will be leaving WMG this Friday for an exciting new opportunity which I have decided to pursue (and which I will share with you in the coming weeks).
Goldberg’s email reads: “After 12 years of helping to build the most passionate, creative and best global merchandising, experiences and e-commerce team in the music business in partnership with Matt Young, I will be leaving WMG this Friday for an exciting new opportunity that I have decided to pursue (and will share with you in the coming weeks.) It has been a pleasure!
Goldberg’s departure from Warner isn’t the only recent exit by a high-profile executive from a major record company in the e-commerce and merchandising space.
Bravado, the central merchandising division of Universal Music Group, parted ways with former CEO Mat Vlasic in October 2020.
