Spence, who joined Sony/ATV in 2014, will report to Co-Managing Director, Tim Major.

The team includes Penny Ducanson, who has been promoted to Director, Contracts Administration. Ducanson’s time with the company dates back to 1986, when she joined CBS Songs, later acquired by SBK. She then worked for SBK, EMI Music Publishing and lastly, Sony/ATV.

Andy Dowie, who has been with the company since 2003, has also been promoted to Senior Business Affairs Manager while Safra Deen Farook moves to Business Affairs Manager following the two years she spent as a paralegal. Recently, Deen Farook received the Richard Toeman Scholarship, presented by the Music Publishers Association.

Lastly, Jack Robson joins the team as Business Affairs Manager after previously serving as a trainee solicitor at London law firm Sound Advice (Legal) LLP. Duncanson, Dowie, Deen Farook and Robson will report to Spence.

“I know as well as anyone how vital our business affairs function is and I’m proud to see so much progression within the team. Andrew is an exceptional lawyer and more than ready to take a leading role within the company,” shares Major. Spence adds, “I’m grateful to both Tim Major and David Ventura for giving me this opportunity. It’s an exciting time to be at Sony/ATV and I’m very much looking forward to the future.”
