Warner Music Group Tech Guru Ethan Kaplan Exits

SOURCE: Published:
Ethan Kaplan, the popular SVP of Emerging Technology for Warner Music Group has left the company. Kaplan has not announced where he'll land, but he will continue running the R.E.M. fan site Murmurs.com. While praising his team, Kaplan was also not without criticism:

“This business is changing, and one of the things that has always remained constant for five years is the entropy inherent to half century old company having its very foundations seismically shift," said Kaplan  “We worked to predict where things were going, call BS on things that were wrong, and orient the company toward things that were right. We succeeded a lot, we missed a lot."

Despite his departure, WMG has a deep bench in digital and online. Most notably, Warner Brothers Records SVP of New Media Jeremy Welt impressed many at MIDEM last week both onstage and in interactions with representatives of leading music tech companies.
