In the wake of this week's news that CATEGORY 5 RECORDS/NASHVILLE VP/Promotion BILL MACKY and SVP/GM CARL STRUBE are both exiting, the label has released a statement to assure the industry that it is not going away.
CEO RAY TERMINI stated, "It has been expressed to me that folks in radio may be concerned after learning about the changes in our promotions department. Make no mistake about it, we are here to stay and I am in this business to win. Change is a natural occurence in a new and evolving company."
The label has also announced the hiring of ALAN FLETCHER, formerly of the WARNER MUSIC GROUP and RHINO RECORDS, for marketing efforts for the label's forthcoming TRAVIS TRITT album release.
Earlier this week the label announced that Northeast Rep DAVID SHAW is being bumped up to VP/Promotions and SE Rep NATHAN CRUISE to National Promo Director. The rest of the staff is rounded out with SAM HARRELL (West Coast), ROSEY FITCHPATRICK (Southwest), SHARI ROTH (Midwest), and STACEY BLYTHE (Executive Asst. Promotions).
