VIRGIN MUSIC GROUP WORLDWIDE ANNOUNCES RESIGNATIONS OF JEFF AYEROFF AND JORDAN HARRIS, CO-CHAIRMEN OF VIRGIN RECORDS AMERICA

 BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Aug. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Ken Berry, chairman and chief executive officer of the Virgin Music Group Worldwide, has announced the resignations of Jeff Ayeroff and Jordan Harris, co- chairmen of Virgin Records America Inc., effective immediately. Berry has named Phil Quartararo president and chief executive officer of Virgin Records America Inc.
 Ayeroff and Harris, co-managing directors of VRA since the founding of the company in 1986, were named co-chairmen following last year's merger of the Virgin label Charisma Records Inc. with VRA.
 Quartararo joined VRA in 1986. In 1990 he went on to launch Charisma Records, serving as president of that label until rejoining VRA as president following the 1992 merger.
 Berry commented, "I'm sorry to see Jordan and Jeff leave the company after all these years. We've been both colleagues and friends. However, I am pleased to be able to place the company in the capable hands of Phil Quartararo. Phil's leadership qualities have been a valuable resource to Virgin for many years, and I am confident that his vision will ensure the continued success of the company.
 "We are enjoying our most successful year ever, with three albums and three singles currently in the Top 10. Virgin is stronger than ever and we're looking forward to an outstanding future."
