FUJIKI TAKES REINS AT UMPG CANADA
11/8/16

Adam Fujiki will head Universal Music Publishing Group’s publishing operation in Canada in a new role as Director, Creative/A&R. UMPG Canada’s VP of A&R Shawn Marino moves over to the label side at Universal Music Canada.

 Based in Toronto, Fujiki will report to Evan Lamberg, UMPG President—North America, as well as locally to Jeffrey Remedios, Universal Music Canada President & CEO. In his new position, Fujiki will work closely with the company’s worldwide A&R team to identify, sign and develop talent and bolster global creative opportunities for UMPG songwriters.

Fujiki was most recently a creative executive with producer/manager Doc McKinney and DM2 Management, where he supported Corbin (FKA Spooky Black) and Psymun. Prior to this, he held various creative roles at Sony Music Entertainment Canada. He was also lead creative at Sony with Pirates Blend Records and instrumental in Sony’s distribution deal with Buzz Records.

 “(Adam is one of the most songwriter- and artist-friendly creative executives I have met in a long time. I want to thank Doc McKinney for the introduction to Adam. I also want to thank Shawn Marino for his years of great contributions to our company. We are incredibly happy he will be staying in the Universal family and working with Jeffrey Remedios, who has been such a great partner since joining Universal Music Group Canada,” said Lamberg.

Remedios added, “(Adam’s) creative instincts and energies will support and match our culture. Canadian songwriters and producers have never been more ascendant—and artists are at the center of who we are as a company. This is no less true in label-side A&R, where Shawn will continue to prove a valued executive and champion of homegrown talent.”
