Shocker! EPIC RECORDS SVP/Promotion and Strategy ERIK OLESEN has exited the label due to restructuring, as has COO MARK SHIMMEL.
OLESEN was officially appointed to the position last MARCH (NET NEWS 3/1/2012), but had been with EPIC since AUGUST 2011. OLESEN's run at EPIC follows a 12-year run at ISLAND DEF JAM, holding numerous positions on the way to SVP/Promotion. He also spent a dozen years at ELEKTRA RECORDS.
Reach out to OLESEN at (917) 674-1517 or firstname.lastname@example.org. SHIMMEL is available at (917) 596-1105.
Look for EPIC SVP/Promotion JACQUELINE SATURN to continue in her post running overall promotion operations for the label.
