Liles Leaves WMG

Kevin Liles has stepped down as executive VP of Warner Music Group to pursue his own “entrepreneurial opportunities.”

Liles will remain with WMG as a consultant but has resigned his day-to-day duties, according to a statement.

“I am thankful for the opportunities that Edgar [Bronfman Jr.] and Lyor [Cohen] have given me, most recently in entrusting me with driving the company’s global artist services strategy, which is redefining the way labels and artists work together,” Liles said in the statement.

“My work here is now complete and I’m excited about the next chapter in my life.”

Liles joined WMG in 2004 and was involved in taking the company public the following year.
