Based at its headquarters in Santa Monica, California, Rob Wells is responsible for the strategic development of UMG’s digital business worldwide. He is charged with ensuring its continued growth and leadership as the company – and the music industry – continues to make the transition from physical media and embraces new revenue streams. This includes managing relationships with global business partners such as Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Vodafone, Nokia, MSN and YouTube, among others.
