SONY/ATV EUROPE PROMOTES TWO
3/11/20

Sony/ATV's European A&R department has promoted Michèle Hamelink to Sr. A&R Europe, and Sarah Gabrielli to UK and Europe A&R Manager. These promotions advance the goals of Sony/ATV’s European A&R team, which include working across European borders, providing international opportunities, and supporting all European A&R departments in signing and developing songwriters.

Sony/ATV’s European A&R team is led by David Ventura, President & Co-MD of Sony/ATV’s UK division and SVP International, and Johnny Tennander, MD Scandinavia & SVP A&R Europe. The team also includes Lasse Ewald, who is Head of European Song Pitching in Stockholm. Hamelink is based in Amsterdam and directly reports to MD Niels Walboomers in the publisher's Benelux office, while Gabrielli is based in London and directly reports to Ventura.

Ventura stated, “Michèle and Sarah have grown into their roles at Sony/ATV and their promotions are thoroughly deserved. Both are incredibly important to the future of our company, and Johnny and I have been fortunate to work closely with them. They embrace our songwriters, their drive is inspiring, and most importantly they live for music.”

Tennander said, “The promotions of Sarah and Michèle are key for the way forward, and for what we want to do with the European A&R team. They are both very passionate about music and A&R, and they are super driven. I feel very positive that they will lift our European and International A&R game to new heights.”

“I’m thrilled to take on this new challenge. I’m thankful for the continued confidence David, Johnny and Niels have in me. I look forward to working more closely with both the European and International A&R teams, and with our incredible songwriters on an international level,” said Hamelink.

Gabrielli stated, “I am incredibly excited to join forces with David, Johnny, Michèle and Lasse as part of the European team. I am looking forward to working alongside all of our amazing European A&R teams to provide our songwriters with a best-in-class service!”

Hamelink began working at Sony/ATV in 2012, and has worked closely with songwriters and producers such as a.o., Gia Koka, Yung Felix, Son Mieux, and Jonas Kröper. Meanwhile, Gabrielli joined Sony/ATV in 2016 and has signed hit songwriters beabadoobee, Jordan Rakei, DamexDame and Loryn.
