Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) has appointed Annette Gentz as the company’s General Manager GSA (Germany, Austria, Switzerland), Classics & Screen. Based in Berlin, she will report to Thomas Vidovic, Managing Director of UMPG Germany and Natasha Baldwin, EVP, UMPG Classics & Screen. In addition to her new role, Gentz’s film and stage music agency, Annette Gentz/ Music & Film Arts, will begin operating under UMPG as its own name.
