The German music publisher has parted company with the head of its London office.

Sam Rigby, who succeeded Sally Groves nine years ago, is said to have resigned.

There has been no comment from either side.

Two Schott’s lifers – Paul Dyer (joined 1985) and Roberto García (2004) – will share Sam’s duties.

Two heads better than one?


UPDATE: Sam Rigby is now working as a fundraiser at the National Theatre.






  • Stephen Maddock says:

    Sam resigned a couple of months ago to take up a new role at the National Theatre.
