Williams formed Shock in 1988 with Andrew McGee and Frank Falvo. It became Australia’s most successful independent record company.

Williams estimates that in his time Shock Recorded “pumped around a billion dollars back into the entertainment industry”. In the past year it has paid out over $3million in royalties to artists.

In parting Williams said, “I’d like to thank the many, many people who have contributed to Shock’s success, and the Australian record and DVD buying public who have put up with our shenanigans over the last 24 years. I’ve very proud of what we’ve achieved together”.

Scot Crawford will now lead the company. “In Executive GM Scot Crawford, Shock has an enthusiastic and forward looking leader who I can guarantee is going to drive the business into an exciting future – I’m really looking forward to watching Shock grow over the coming years,” David said.
Scot added, “Shock is an Australian entertainment institution – it is an honour to take on this role and I fully intend to give this monkey a damn good shake and take the business to even greater heights.”
Shock Records is now owned by Regency Media.
