Veteran music industry entrepreneur and artist manager JEFF CASTELAZ has resigned as Pres. of ELEKTRA RECORDS to focus exclusively on the growth of his CAST MANAGEMENT and ongoing charitable endeavors. CASTELAZ will be transitioning from ELEKTRA on SEPTEMBER 18th and can be reached at CAST MANAGEMENT beginning OCTOBER 1st.
CASTELAZ said, "Running ELEKTRA RECORDS has been a dream come true. Being part of ATLANTIC RECORDS GROUP, I've learned so much from [Co-Chairman/CEO] CRAIG [KALLMAN] and [Co-Chairman/COO] JULIE [GREENWALD], and will forever count them as business mentors and friends. One of the lessons I've learned from them is to follow my heart -- and in my heart, it’s clear to me that I can contribute most significantly by working directly with artists in a managerial role, which is why I’m choosing to focus solely on CAST."
