Paul Broucek has been named president of music at Warner Bros. Pictures and will assume control of overall creative direction of music operations and oversee administrative, production and day-to-day business functions.

Broucek, a long time music executive and producer who headed the New Line Cinema creative music team for 12 years, will report to Warner Bros Pictures Group president Jeff Robinov.

He will also oversee New Line Records along with executive vice-president Jason Linn, serving as its president, and reporting to New Line Cinema president Toby Emmerich regarding that business.

Broucek most recently launched Common Market, a music consulting, production and publishing company specialising in productions for film, television, records, online, commercials, games and new media. Common Market will continue, although Broucek will step away from day-to-day operations.

He also formed a creative partnership with record producer Salaam Remi for a lineup of film projects such as Sex And The City 2 and before that worked with Fairlight Instruments of Australia and Record Plant in Los Angeles
