FRED CASIMIR

FRED CASIMIR

EVP Global Recordings & President Continental Europe, BMG

Fred Casimir’s industry experience spans nearly three decades. Having joined BMG in 2009 as one of the company’s first employees, he helped to build the company from the ground up as Managing Director, Germany. His role expanded to see him assuming oversight over more territories, tasked with building the international label setup and catalogue business. He took over full responsibility for all of BMG’s continental European operations in January of 2016.

Before coming to BMG, Casimir spent over four years at Fremantle Media, responsible for all music-related businesses including publishing and licensing, as well as the recording and soundtrack business for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. As an A&R executive, Casimir spent seven years independently looking after international artist projects on behalf of labels  primarily from the U.S. and Europe. His resume also includes stops as Head of A&R for Mercury Records Germany, and A&R duties at EMI Germany. Casimir is an accomplished musician himself, having been a student at the Swiss Jazz School in Bern.
