300 Entertainment, the company behind artists like Tee Grizzley, Young Thug and Migos, has just hired Mark Robinson, forger Senior Vice President and General Council at BMG. Robinson will serve as Head of Business and Legal Affairs for 300.
Robinson is the name behind some big moves in the music business by BMG. He was a key player in the Broken Bow, Vagrant and Rise and S-Curve Records acquisitions. He was also head of the legal team that broke through the “Safe Harbour” defense of internet service providers over content piracy.
In fact, Mark Robinson was named one of Billboard’s 2016 Digital Power Players.
In a statement the new hire said, “300 is a company that is on the cutting edge, that is adept at breaking new artists and is at the forefront of what is happening in the digital world – a true modern day entertainment company. I came up through the industry alongside many of the senior executives at 300 and worked closely with co- founders Kevin Liles, [Lyor Cohen, Todd Moscowitz] and Roger Gold while I was at Warner Music Group. This move feels like I’m coming home to family.”
Kevin Liles, one of the founders and current CEO of 300 Entertainment said “We are proud to bring aboard Mark Robinson as Head of Business and Legal Affairs. He is an exemplary colleague and partner and is the best in the business. As we continue to create the next great American record label, we keep in mind that you are only as good as your people. We are proud to bring aboard Mark Robinson as Head of Business and Legal Affairs. He is an exemplary colleague and partner and is the best in the business. Welcome home, Mark.”
Cohen and Moscowitz no longer represent 300 as the pair left the company earlier this year to pursue other opportunities.
