"Alexandra is a perfect fit for our family of labels as we continue to expand our creative partnerships," stated Weiss. "She is not just an incredibly gifted music supervisor, but a storyteller, a tastemaker and a talent scout with a track record of success that speaks for itself." 

"Iím a big fan of the UMG roster and have always admired the care they take in breaking acts," added Patsavas. "Their artist friendly approach and careful strategic promotion of new artists is extremely impressive and we look forward to partnering with the biggest label in the world." 

John Rubeli will stay as President of Chop Shop Records overseeing daily operations of the label. Prior to Chop Shop Records, Rubeli was VP of A&R at Atlantic Records. Rubeli was also manager to artists including The Verve, The Boo Radleys and The Geraldine Fibbers, booked the second stage at Lollapalooza from 1992-1995 and began his career in the music industry as a college representative for Capitol Records while simultaneously booking acts like Nirvana, Nine Inch Nails and The Flaming Lips at his college. 

As one of the industryís most influential and in-demand music supervisors, Patsavas has played a significant role in identifying and exposing emerging artists to mainstream audiences, including Death Cab For Cutie, The Killers, Snow Patrol, Ingrid Michaelson and The Fray, among many others. She has created the sountracks to a number of hit TV series over the past decade, including Grey's Anatomy, The OC, Gossip Girl and Mad Men, among many others.
