Briner To BNA As National Promo Director
November 1, 2006 at 6:16 AM (PT)
SONY BMG/NASHVILLE has tapped promotions veteran GEORGE BRINER as the new Nat'l Dir./Promotions for BNA RECORDS. BRINER was most recently the Midwest Promotions Mgr. for MCA/NASHVILLE. At BNA he'll be reporting to VP/Promotion RICK MOXLEY. Before moving to MCA, BRINER was at DREAMWORKS for many years, rising to Nat'l Promo Dir. This is also a reunion for MOXLEY and BRINER, who worked together at WARNER BROS. many moons ago.
It also looks like BRINER will be relocating from CHICAGO to MUSIC CITY. His new direct line will be (615) 301-4458, and the email is George.Briner@sonybmg.com. Congrats to one of the industry's great guys. He's on the case at BNA, starting today.
At MCA, look for VP/Promotions ROYCE RISSER to be announcing their new Midwest person soon. We're hearing that decision is either close or has already been made.
