New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG), a leading global music publishing company, today announced that Tom Foster has been promoted to Head of Film & TV, Europe, effective immediately. Based in London, Foster will continue reporting to Mike McCormack, Managing Director of UMPG UK.

In his new position, Foster will oversee strategy for UMPG's film and TV divisions across Europe. The move reinforces the company's commitment to strengthening alignment across territories and providing leading global services to its songwriters.

On making the announcement, McCormack said: "It's rare that you find an executive as charming, well-liked and charismatic as Tom, who is also so effective and forward-thinking in their role. His management of the team has delivered us many successes over the years and given invaluable, profile-raising film and TV placements for new artists on our roster. This promotion is well deserved and another step in UMPG's globally integrated approach to deliver the very best service to our roster."

"Now more than ever, sync is one of the most important avenues for bringing our songwriters' music to global audiences. With so much quality content in development, this is a very exciting time for our business," said Foster. "I want to thank UMPG Chairman and CEO Jody Gerson for empowering our team to turn good ideas into great ones, and Mike McCormack for his energy and consistent support. UMPG's Film & TV team has unmatched passion and creativity, and the future is bright for our songwriters."

In his previous role as UK Head of Film & TV at UMPG, Foster was responsible for securing and negotiating sync placements across a diverse roster of writers including Irving Berlin, Elton John, Agnes Obel and Tom Walker. Foster joined the company in March 2011.
