After celebrating its one-year anniversary in APRIL, BROOKLYN-based LAND SHARK PROMOTION has named ex-TVT RECORDS and UNIVERSAL REPUBLIC promo dude MATT MARTINO to oversee the company's College radio and Modern Rock Specialty efforts as previously mentioned a few weeks ago (NET NEWS 5/13).
MARTINO spent several years working with both LAND SHARK's JOHN PERRONE and GARY JAY at TVT RECORDS.
"We put the band back together," mused LAND SHARK's JOHN PERRONE. "MATT was a very important piece for us of the rock department at TVT and now he will help us bring LAND SHARK to a new level by adding to our presence at all of the different rock formats."
"We're a three-headed hydra now," notes LAND SHARK founder GARY JAY, "and while bigger isn't always better...sometimes, it just is. Ask my wife!," he adds with a sly wink. "We couldn't be any more pleased to welcome our man MATTY BLACK into LAND SHARK and have him a part of our proud promotional posse."
MARTINO said, "Having the chance to work more strategically with radio, as well as reunite with two of my long-time mentors, creates the perfect storm for me. I look forward to making an immediate impact here at LAND SHARK Promotion and bolstering our already-great track record."
MARTINO can be reached at (718) 768-2500 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, LAND SHARK has opened up a new satellite office in NEW JERSEY under PERRONE at 44 Harmon Cove Towers, SECAUCUS, NJ 07094. He can be reached at (201) 558-1600 or email@example.com.
