LEE TRINK has been appointed EVP and GM of VIRGIN RECORDS AMERICA, which once again pairs him with VIRGIN RECORDS AMERICA Chairman and CEO JASON FLOM, to whom he will report. TRINK worked closely with FLOM since 1997, when the two were at ATLANTIC and LAVA RECORDS.
TRINK, who comes to VIRGIN from LAVA RECORDS, where he was GM and SVP overseeing all label functions except for A&R, will be based in NEW YORK and will oversee all areas of marketing, promotion, publicity, sales, new media and international. He will also work with parent company EMI on human resources matters.
He's worked in the Brooklyn D.A.'s office and completed Israeli Army basic training. What better preparation for the music business?
"LEE is one of the most creative, effective and well-liked guys in the business and I'm very happy he's on the VIRGIN team," said FLOM. "He's tough. He's worked in the BROOKLYN D.A.'s office and completed ISRAELI ARMY basic training. What better preparation for the music business?"
"I'm thrilled to be joining the team at VIRGIN and continuing my successful partnership with JASON. I look forward to working with VIRGIN's rich and diverse roster of artists," TRINK commented.
