The identities have been known inside the offices of Universal Music Group for days, not to mention among colleagues, friends, and other associates. Now, the list of confirmed dead at Universal Music Group is sadly official.
Thomas Ayad, an international product manager of UMG-owned Mercury Records, was confirmed dead shortly after the attacks on Le Bataclan in Paris. Now, two additional executives, Marie Mosser (Mercury Records France) and Manu Perez (Universal Records France), both pictured above, are now also confirmed dead.
All three were at the venue on Friday night.
Outside of the UMG individuals, two other music industry executives were also confirmed dead over the weekend. William Decherf, a French music critic, and Nick Alexander, the ‘merch guy’ for Eagles of Death Metal, were also stricken at the Bataclan.
