New boss at EMI a blast from the past

O'Donnell is making a welcome return and will be the new Managing Director at the company he ran from '02 to '08.
His background is exceptional. Apart from his work at EMI he has also worked at Sony and started the Murmur label.
John also co-manages Cold Chisel.
