Douglas Robert Putman (born 25 March 1984) is a Canadian business executive. Putman is the owner and chief executive officer of the music retailer Sunrise Records, the President of Everest Toys which is the largest distributor in North America for toys and games, and the owner of HMV UK.
In 2017, it was announced that Putman had acquired HMV Canada after it fell into receivership. The former subsidiary of HMV UK is now operating as Sunrise Records. On 5 February 2019, HMV UK was acquired by Sunrise Records, owned by Putman, for £883,000, saving 100 stores and 1,600 jobs. At HMV, Putman has spearheaded a turnaround in the business’s fortunes, launching Europe’s largest entertainment store – the 25,000 sq ft HMV Vault in Birmingham – adding greater depth to the stores’ music offering and showing that physical stores can thrive and co-exist with the rise of streaming.
