Wilson’s experience lies solidly within the music industry, having worked at Universal Music UK as Vice President, International Marketing and at The Orchard in Artist Services.

She has worked with Beggars Group’s most celebrated artists including Adele, Radiohead, The National, MIA, Bon Iver, across labels XL, 4ad, Rough Trade, Matador and Young Turks.
Said Wilson, “I am thrilled to take on this wonderful opportunity at TuneCore, a dynamic and future-facing company. Coming off the back of a growth phase during lockdown there is so much potential for continued expansion in the territories I’m overseeing. I expect the current business landscape to change rapidly over the next few years. I’m grateful to Faryal, Andreea and the team at TuneCore/Believe for inviting me into their fold and can’t wait to dive in!”
Commented Khan-Thompson, “As TuneCore continues to grow internationally, it is important to have strong leadership in place overseeing the UK, one of the world’s biggest music markets. With Sarah, we have an experienced executive with deep roots in the UK music industry and I’m looking forward to working closely with her to build TuneCore’s global footprint.”
