On the same day as the creation of NEMS, Ron White, an EMI marketing executive congratulated Epstein with securing a recording contract with George Martin. Ron White had personally contacted some EMI producers (Norrie Paramor, Norman Newell, Walter Ridley) to tell them about the Beatles but they all refused. The only one he couldn't reach (because he was on holiday) was George Martin.
