Island Def Jam Downsizing Staff
April 10, 2014 at 4:18 PM (PT)
On the heels of IDJMG splitting its labels up into separate entities (NET NEWS, 4/1), the company has decided to downsize its staff. An official word is reportedly coming from the company, but based on social media, among those departing include:
SVP/Rock Promotion CHRISTINE CHIAPPETTA exits after over 12 years. "My 12+ years at IDJ are over, starting today," she said. "I appreciate all the love and support you’ve given me and the artists I work with. I hopefully won’t be 'on the beach' for long but in the meantime, I’ll be sunning myself on every beach I can get to between now and then."
Reach out to CHIAPPETTA at firstname.lastname@example.org, @westcoastchia (twitter), (310) 663-1816.
VP/Rock Promotion DAVID McGILVRAY is leaving.
VP/Promotion LORI RISCHER is also vacating her post. Find her at email@example.com.
Sr. Dir./National Triple A Promotion CHERYL BROZ. Reach her at Cheryl.Broz@comcast.net, or (615) 293-9867.
NORTHWEST Regional ROLAND WEST exits after over 16 years at the label. ROLAND can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, (916) 873-8531.
