ISLAND DEF JAM MUSIC GROUP has expanded its media and artist relations team with the promotion of GABE TESORIERO to SVP/Media and Artist Relations, it was announced today by EVP/Media and Artist Relations LAURA SWANSON.
"I first learned of GABE's media skills," said SWANSON, "when I began seeing all of the amazing press he was getting as an indie publicist for KANYE and so many others. Long before either of us had arrived at IDJ, I knew I had to work with him. Not only is he an amazing media strategist, but I can't think of anyone else I'd rather have by my side for this wild ride. Working alongside GABE has been a pleasure as well as an education that I know will continue for years to come."
"It has been an incredible honor and privilege to work alongside, and under the tutelage of, an executive like LAURA SWANSON," said TESORIERO. "Her passion, patience, humor and grace provides an excellent and much needed balance to my, shall we say, more idiosyncratic approach. With the dynamic leadership of BARRY WEISS, STEVE BARTELS and the rest of the amazing IDJ team, I look forward to continued growth and success for this historic label and its unmatched roster of artists. I also look forward to a world at peace and a fair showing for the BOSTON RED SOX next season."
