REPUBLIC RECORDS SVP/Promotion and Artist Development DAVID NATHAN will segue to the BIG MACHINE LABEL GROUP as SVP/Pop Promotion, effective immediately.
He will serve as a high-level executive liaison amidst the companies, spearheading promotion efforts for a myriad of superstars and developing talent across BIG MACHINE RECORDS, REPUBLIC NASHVILLE, THE VALORY MUSIC CO. and DOT RECORDS, including such artists as TAYLOR SWIFT, BRANTLEY GILBERT, FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE, THE BAND PERRY, CASSADEE POPE and RASCAL FLATTS.
"DAVID has been one of the pioneers of REPUBLIC since its inception," REPUBLIC RECORDS co-Founder and Chief Executive MONTE LIPMAN said. "As the company continues to grow its relationship with NASHVILLE’s #1 hit-making machine, it only makes sense to invest in the future expansion of SCOTT BORCHETTA’s BIG MACHINE LABEL GROUP."
"We're thrilled to formally welcome DAVID to the team," BORCHETTA said. "He’s an incredibly talented and energetic executive who’s always thinking big. “DAVID has been involved with TAYLOR SWIFT’S history-making crossover success from the very beginning as part of the mighty REPUBLIC pop promotion department. I simply could not pass up the opportunity to acquire 100% of his focus to the artists at the BIG MACHINE LABEL GROUP. This is another step in the evolution of our company and we know it’s going to bring mega pop muscle for our initiatives. We can't wait to begin working together."
"I'm honored and excited to take this next step in my career," NATHAN said. "It affords me the opportunity to do even more and grow both professionally and individually. I want to thank both MONTE and SCOTT for this invaluable opportunity as well as the support of EVP CHARLIE WALK.”
