NEW YORK – Warner Music Group said Friday that turnaround expert Stephen Cooper has been named CEO and that Edgar Bronfman Jr. will serve as chairman.

The move marks a switch in the two executives’ most recent roles after WMG was recently taken private in an acquisition by Len Blavatnik’s Access Industries.

Bronfman will focus on the music major’s strategy and growth opportunities, while Cooper, who will remain on the board, will be responsible for the company’s day-to-day operations.
