One of the world's leading indie music companies [PIAS] has today announced that current CEO of Inertia Music, Colin Daniels, will be taking on the expanded role of Regional Managing Director for North America, Australia and Asia. 

The announcement comes after [PIAS] acquired the Sydney-based label and business at the beginning of the year.

Daniels has previously worked in senior management roles at both the distribution and record company arm of Mushroom, where he helped set up Mushroom Records UK, before joining EMI Records in Australia and Europe as A&R Director.

Daniels has also sat on the board of global rights agency, Merlin for the past six years.

In the expanded role, Daniels will split his time between the US and Australia, where he will focus on growing the [PIAS] North America operations and emerging music markets in Asia. 

The appointment follows The Music's exclusive announcement in September that Inertia have undergone a complete restructure of its operations.
