Tony Harlow

Managing Director, Warner Music Australia (AUS) 

Tony Harlow began his career at EMI in the UK, rising quickly through the ranks of international marketing before moving to Australia to become Managing Director, EMI Music Australia. After returning to the UK in 2002, Harlow became CEO of Richard Branson’s V2 label where he worked with acts like Moby, The White Stripes, Paul Weller, Stereophonics, and Mercury Rev, as well as setting up Co-Op Music. 

After V2’s acquisition by Universal Music Group in 2007, Harlow briefly headed the International Marketing team, before joining Bravado, UMG’s merchandise operation, which he left in April 2010. Later that year, he returned to Australia where he took on the role of Managing Director of Warner Music, steering the company into a new era. One year on from his appointment, Harlow will discuss his first year in the new role and his vision for the future, both of Warner Music and the music industry in general.
