Check out this great interview with MEDIAmobz Chief Content & Marketing Officer, Jay Durgan. Formerly head of global marketing for Warner Music Group, Jay has overseen international marketing for Janet Jackson, Jay-Z, Limp Bizkit, Madonna, Seal, Stevie Wonder, Sting, and many more…

“Jay Durgan may always be considered an international music marketing maestro.

For three decades, Durgan—one of the most brilliant music marketing strategists of our time—dazzled the music industry by overseeing with his teams the international music marketing that led to Michael Bublé, Josh Groban, Janet Jackson, Bryan Adams, Soundgarden, Suzanne Vega, Bon Jovi, Boyz II Men, Sheryl Crow, Hanson, Sting, Tonic, Linkin Park, and countless others achieving soaring worldwide sales.

He and his teams also insured that Stevie Wonder, R.E.M., Madonna, Enya, the Coors, Seal, and Phil Collins broke all-existing international album sales projections.

Before Warner Music Group tapped him to be its London-based senior VP of business development and strategic partnerships in 2007 in order to spearhead the company’s global strategies (excluding the U.S.) in the digital world, Durgan had served as WMI’s head of global marketing between 2000 and 2004.

Previously, Durgan had worked as senior VP international at both Universal Music Group (1998-1999); and at PolyGram Holding (1996-98), Inc. As well, he held senior international positions at PolyGram, and previously at A&M Records from 1985-1996.

Today, Durgan is a member of the board of directors to Outhink Media, Inc. in San Mateo, California, and heads up business development for the Outhink portfolio company, MEDIAmobz that seeks to fill a growing gap between companies’ demand for multimedia content and resources needed to create that content.”
