COLUMBIA RECORDS has promoted VP/Rhythm Promotion AYELET SCHIFFMAN to SVP/Rhythm & Dance Promotion, effective immediately. The 21-year veteran at SONY MUSIC has been instrumental in the success of artists such as BEYONCÉ, ADELE, PHARRELL, JOHN LEGEND, J. COLE, KREWELLA, ZHU and more. In her new post, SCHIFFMAN will continue overseeing and spearheading promotion initiatives at Rhythm and Dance.
“AYELET is a cornerstone of our department and the entire promotion community," COLUMBIA EVP/Head of Promotion LEE LEIPSNER said. "Her vision, diligence, and hard work continue to drive the artists and the team around her to achieve immense success. Over the years, she has delivered at the highest level, and I want to personally congratulate her on this much-deserved promotion.”
“I’d like to thank LEE, JOEL KLAIMAN and ROB STRINGER for this amazing opportunity,” SCHIFFMAN said. “In so many ways, I’ve grown up here at COLUMBIA -- a label I refer to as an extension of my family. As my mentor and boss, LEE has given me the opportunity to grow into the executive that I’ve become. I am truly learning from the best in the industry. I’d like to extend a special thank you to JIM BURRUSS, for his guidance and support throughout my career. I look forward to continuing to work with our tremendous roster of artists, to further lead and guide them through our world of radio.”
