July 8, 2008 at 6:50 AM (PT)
As ALL ACCESS reported yesterday (NET NEWS 7/7), promo veteran BOBBY YOUNG has left his post in the Southeast at BIG MACHINE RECORDS, to take on the SVP/Promotions and Artist Development role at COUNTRY THUNDER RECORDS and their new co-imprint, PERMIAN. BOBBY has been with the BIG MACHINE for two-and-a-half years.
Last night, BIG MACHINE announced that EQUITY Southeast Regional JEFF DAVIS will be coming on to replace YOUNG. DAVIS, who has been part of the EQUITY promo team for four years, began his career in radio and has made stops at EPIC, MCA and ELEKTRA RECORDS.
BIG MACHINE VP/Promo JACK PURCELL said of the changes: “BOBBY’s hard work and whistle will be missed in the BMR hallways. He’s a friend that will always be and I wish him and the folks at his new home nothing but the best. Moving forward it became crystal clear to us that with JEFF’s relationships and veteran experience they made him the perfect BOBBY YOUNG replacement part. He’s a gentleman’s gentleman and we welcome him to BMR.”
DAVIS’ first day at BIG MACHINE is JULY 14th. He may be reached at: (615) 324-7776 and at Jeff.Davis@bigmachinemail.com.
