Ethiopia Habtemariam Leaves Motown

Ethiopia Habtemariam Steps Down As CEO Of Motown.


Yesterday Ethiopia Habtemariam announced she is stepping down as chairwoman and CEO of UMG's Motown Records. She is quoted as saying,

"It was a busy time being in dual roles and laying the foundation for what was to come in an industry with an ever-changing landscape. While continuing to build at UMPG, I was also deeply dedicated to bringing a renewed vision of Black excellence to Motown – rooted in the past but connected to today, global in nature, and a platform for the future."

Habtemariam was named president of Motown in 2014 and upped to chairwoman/CEO in early 2021. No news on what she will be doing next.


Speak, Heart, Share...Thanks!
