SECRETLY DISTRIBUTION has opened up EUROPEAN offices, based on OLD STREET in LONDON. With headquarters in BLOOMINGTON, IN, this adds to the company's growing number of satellite offices, which include LOS ANGELES, NEW YORK and BERLIN.
The company is also rebranding from SC DISTRIBUTION to SECRETLY DISTRIBUTION. With continued global development of the company in recent years, the name change seeks to reflect a holistic view of who they represent. In addition to distributing SECRETLY GROUP labels DEAD OCEANS, JAGJAGUWAR, SECRETLY CANADIAN and NUMERO GROUP -- the roster includes 40 other labels; including CAPTURED TRACKS, MERGE, CONSTELLATION, GHOSTLY INTERNATIONAL and AWESOME TAPES FROM AFRICA.
SECRETLY has also hired former COMMUNION RECORDS exec CHRIS CANNON as Head Of International Sales and ex-PIAS member STEVE ROSE as International Project Manager to "expand" and "solidify" its goal for these labels: a truly global, streamlined and efficient operation.
Commented SECRETLY DISTRIBUTION Managing Director CHRIS WELZ: "This is an exciting time for our company as we add a powerful component to our distribution services. CHRIS and STEVE join a growing international team and will convert their knowledge of label, distribution and artist management into bespoke sales and marketing campaigns in the UK and beyond. As always, we remain deeply committed to putting the best opportunities in front of our labels and artists and we have always taken great pride in our deep relationship to the content we distribute. This new office is a significant extension of that experience while looking to provide on-the-ground guidance in an ever-growing global marketplace."
