Capitol Christian Music Group has promoted Peter York to Chairman/CEO. In his expanded role, York will drive CCMG’s strategic direction, business development initiatives and key partner relationships while continuing to manage the company’s Label Group, as well as the market-leading Capitol Christian Publishing division.
“Peter is one of our industry’s most highly-regarded and accomplished executives,” CMG Chairman/CEO Steve Barnet said. “He has been instrumental in achieving CCMG’s market-leading stature and the development and support of so many important Christian music artists. Having worked closely with Bill Hearn for more than three decades, he is uniquely qualified to take the full reins of CCMG as its Chairman/CEO and lead the company into the future. Everyone at CMG joins me in congratulating Peter on this well-deserved promotion.”
“It was an honor to work with Bill Hearn, my close friend and colleague, for more than 33 years,” York said. “I learned so much from him, and I’m humbled to take on the responsibility of running the best company in the Christian music world. I thank Steve Barnett for his continuing confidence and belief in me, and the talented team at CCMG for working with me to help our artists and songwriters reach new heights and expand the audience for their music and songs throughout the world.”
