As hinted on ALL ACCESS last month (NET NEWS 1/11), JILL WEINDORF has been named VP/Radio & Video Promotion at CONCORD MUSIC GROUP. She replaces DAVE MORRELL, who exited.
WEINDORF began her career in 1995 as a marketing representative in the college promotion department at ELEKTRA RECORDS. In 1997, she moved to UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP's VERVE label, rising to Associate Director in 2003. She became Dir./National Publicity & Promotion for NARADA/BACK PORCH/REAL WORLD RECORDS in 2005. The next year, WEINDORF moved to BLUE NOTE as Dir./West Coast Promotion.
Throughout her career, WEINDORF has been instrumental in the development of artists such as DIANA KRALL, NORAH JONES, JAMIE CULLUM, AMOS LEE, NATALIE MERCHANT and TRACY CHAPMAN, among others.
"CONCORD is fortunate to have someone of JILL's experience and enthusiasm," said CONCORD GM GENE RUMSEY, to whom WEINDORF reports. "Her love for music and great relationships make her an invaluable member of our team. She looks at the larger aspect of overall artist development and will enhance our efforts in this vital area."
