LOS ANGELES-based UMG VP/Promotion JOE PUTNAM, who also handled WEST COAST duties for MERCURY NASHVILLE is leaving the label after nearly 13 years.
“I have decided to move forward and onto other endeavors because it’s just, time,” said PUTNAM. “I've Learned lessons in life and business from patient mentors while working to break some great artists alongside the most dedicated group of folks around. I’ll miss the camaraderie and belief in common goals that are so gratifying.”
PUTNAM relocated to LOS ANGELES last NOVEMBER (NET NEWS 11/14), following the consolidation of UMG/NASHVILLE and CAPITOL. He was elevated to VP status in 2010 after handling the NORTHEAST for MCA. Reach him here.
