Exec to Leave Time Warner British Music Unit

Rob Dickins, chairman of Time Warner's British music division, is expected to exit his post by the time his contract expires in December, sources said.

Time Warner has decided not to renew Dickins' deal but has yet to find an executive to replace him, sources said.

Time Warner is wooing PolyGram Music Group President Roger Ames to fill a high-level post at Warner's international music division, sources said. Ames' contract with PolyGram allows him to leave his current post in late October when Seagram Co. completes its purchase of PolyGram.

Dickins and Ames could not be reached for comment, and representatives for Warner Music Group and PolyGram declined to discuss the matter.
