BBC Worldwide
London, UK
Simon has spent ten years working in music for the commercial division of the BBC following fifteen at a range of Major and Indie labels including EMI and Ministry Of Sound. He is responsible for a catalogue of over 1 million recordings at the BBC by most major artists stretching back to the 1920’s and deals with all record labels to ensure access to these for CD, LP, download and streaming releases.
