Warner Music Group (WMG) will expand in Nashville, TN over the next two years, bringing up to 175 jobs in Davidson County. WMG will relocate its U.S. finance team to its recently leased offices downtown at Nashville City Center. After undergoing renovations, WMG’s new Nashville office will open in mid-2017. WMG’s longstanding presence on Music Row will remain at its current location.
“As we all know, Nashville is not only home to the best artists and songwriters in the world, but it has a vibrant and growing economy. The top talent in the world can be found here, our company already has a strong presence in the community, and the city and state have been tremendous at helping us establish our new location downtown,” said John Esposito, WMG Chairman and CEO. “Nashville is the perfect home for Warner Music’s newly created division, and I look forward to welcoming our colleagues to Music City.”
“Tennessee is already home to the world’s most iconic entertainment brands,” said Tennessee Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd. “Warner Music’s decision to expand its finance teams in Nashville is further validation of our state’s global appeal in the music and entertainment industry. The music industry supports more than 56,000 jobs in the Nashville area and has a $10 billion economic impact on the region annually. Warner Music’s commitment only solidifies Nashville’s position as a global entertainment capital. On behalf of Team Tennessee, I’d like to welcome Warner Music to Nashville and look forward to the positive impact these jobs will have for Davidson County.”
