Sony Music UK & Ireland’s COO, Nicola Tuer, will be leaving the company at the end of September due to family reasons. Tuer has had a long and successful career at Sony Music UK, starting in the sales department and rising to the position of Chief Operating Officer in 2014. Throughout her tenure, she has been instrumental in the success of numerous artists, including Beyoncé, Mariah Carey, and Michael Jackson.

Expressing her gratitude for her time at Sony Music, Tuer stated that she was proud to have been part of the company for nearly 30 years. She thanked her colleagues and friends for their support and wished the entire Sony Music family continued success. Tuer’s departure leaves a significant gap in the company, and her can-do attitude, commercial acumen, and dedication will be missed.
Despite Tuer’s departure, Sony Music UK continues to thrive and is committed to supporting its artists. The company will need to find a suitable replacement for Tuer to ensure continuity and maintain its success in the highly competitive music industry. Tuer’s legacy at Sony Music UK will be remembered as she played a vital role in shaping the careers of many renowned artists and contributing to the overall success of the company.
