CURB RECORDS NASHVILLE has named former ARISTA Mgr./Regional promotion RYAN DOKKE (NET NEWS 5/27) VP/Promotion, filling the seat vacated when ADRIAN MICHAELS left last YEAR.
"I am very excited about bringing a new energy to the CURB team," said DOKKE. "In my career I have always pushed myself to aim higher than the bar set in front of me. I am grateful to MIKE CURB, JIM ED (NORMAN) and TAYLOR (CHILDRESS) for giving me the chance to focus my energy on this artist roster. It’s an exciting time to be at CURB RECORDS and I am thrilled to be part of the team."
"RYAN is a natural born leader," said THE CURB GROUP CEO JIM NORMAN. "His tenacity and drive combined with his love of music make him perfectly suited to meet the demands of this rapidly changing industry. THE CURB GROUP’s enterprises are numerous and extend to many areas, from music to motorsports to education and beyond. We’ve been searching for a candidate with the vision to actuate the many varied opportunities available here and we found that in RYAN."
THE CURB GROUP VP TAYLOR CHILDRESS said, "RYAN is known for his passion and his dogged determination, both of which will serve him well in his new role here. His meteoric rise during his ten plus years working in radio made him one of the youngest PDs in the format- demonstrating his ‘Can Do’ attitude. He has the intelligence and vision needed to lead CURB RECORDS’ promotion efforts. He's also a great human being and is lauded industry-wide for his solid character. I cannot think of a more perfect choice to help us usher in a new and exciting era for CURB RECORDS."
"After 50 years in business, CURB RECORDS has enjoyed a lasting legacy of great talent. We are now proud to have RYAN DOKKE bringing his talent and enthusiasm to our promotion staff and working closely with our long-time National Promotion Director MIKE ROGERS and his team," added CURB Chairman MIKE CURB.
Prior to his recent stint with ARISTA, DOKKE spent time in radio, handling programming and on-air positions with CLEAR CHANNEL, CITADEL, and MORRIS broadcasting companies.
