Former eBay exec takes on Universal Music Group CIO role
Universal Music Group (UMG) has appointed Dan Morales as Chief Information Officer (CIO), overseeing its global technology platforms and developing new systems to expand the company’s analytics and data platforms.
Boyd Muir, UMG’s Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and President of Operations, says: “We are adding an executive with immense talent and experience in building technology and software solutions on a global scale and leveraging technology to deliver growth.”
