DAVE LOMBARDI has been upped to VP/Promotion for CAROLINE -- the independent services division of CAPITOL MUSIC GROUP. He will report to EVP/GM MIKE HARRIS, and be based in NEW YORK. In his new position, LOMBARDI will head CAROLINE’s promotion department and be responsible for conceiving and directing the company’s promotion strategies while establishing and maintaining strong relationships and interaction with CAROLINE’s label and artist partners.
Pres. DOMINIC PANDISCIA stated, "DAVE has been an integral part of the promotion team that has driven success for CAROLINE artists such as M83, SLASH, ALTER BRIDGE and more in recent years. Additionally, his years of experience at ASTRALWERKS, EMI and other labels, breaking singles and working with artists at every level of development, are truly unmatched."
HARRIS added, "Over the past 10 years, I have had a front row seat watching DAVE’s success working with a vast array of records and artists. CAROLINE is thrilled to have such a proven leader at the helm of our promotion team."
LOMBARDI said, "I am thrilled to be part of the shared vision for the new CAROLINE, led by DOM and MIKE, and I cannot thank them enough for the opportunity. I’m excited to be working with such a great group of people and making my contribution to the team by running promotion. Everyone at CAROLINE is passionate about music and driven to deliver for our artist and label partners. Plus, we all feel the buzz of the re-energized CAPITOL MUSIC GROUP under the leadership of STEVE BARNETT, GREG THOMPSON and MICHELLE JUBELIRER, and I know that great times lie ahead."

Concurrent with his expanded role, LOMBARDI has named AMBER BOUCHARD as National Dir./Promotion, MIDWEST, who was PD at WEQX/ALBANY and CHRIS SEEGER as National Dir./Promotion, WEST COAST, who spent nearly 20 years at WARNER BROS. RECORDS and was most recently at IN2UNE. Both BOUCHARD and SEEGER report to LOMBARDI, who added, "I am beyond excited to be working with AMBER and CHRIS -- our new promo team stars."
