The former Chairman and CEO of Universal Music Group International (UMGI) has taken his first position in the industry since being forced to retire as the result of the effects of encephalitis.

Max has been named non-exec chairman of Metropolis, a UK-based recording and music facility that syles itself  a ‘modern day Motown’.

All who know Max will be thrilled at his return to action.

Christopher (Max) Hole is made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) by the Prince of Wales during an Investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace, London.




  • Peter says:

    what does a ‘non-executive chairman’ actually do?
    Is it more than only a special vanity title for a board member?

  • Robert Holmén says:

    Max Hole.

    That sounds like Max Headroom’s less-respectable cousin

  • Bill Berger says:

    Worked with Max for years … an extremely talented music executive and a gentleman.
