UNIVERSAL REPUBLIC RECORDS and JASON FLOM have entered into a new partnership that will have UNIVERSAL REPUBLIC providing promotion, marketing, sales and distribution services for LAVA RECORDS. The announcement was made today by UNIVERSAL REPUBLIC Pres./CEO MONTE LIPMAN and JASON FLOM.
"Our partnership with LAVA is testament to the commitment we have for discovering and nurturing new artists and their music," stated LIPMAN. "And the chance to work with JASON is a wonderful opportunity because he shares our passion for this process. His fierce competitiveness and remarkable achievements in launching LAVA define creative leadership at its very best. Over the last decade, JASON has been responsible for successfully developing a diverse roster of artists, and I know he will continue the creative process that originally made LAVA such a powerhouse. More importantly, I'm just glad I don't have to compete against him anymore."
What attracted me most to Universal Republic was Monte's approach to the creative process, and the energy and passion of his team.
"I'm delighted to be moving into the next phase of my career and doing it alongside DOUG MORRIS (UMG Chairman/CEO), MEL LEWINTER (UNIVERSAL MOTOWN REPUBLIC GROUP Chairman), MONTE and AVERY LIPMAN (UNIVERSAL REPUBLIC Co-President) and the entire UNIVERSAL REPUBLIC team," added FLOM. "What attracted me most to UNIVERSAL REPUBLIC was MONTE's approach to the creative process, and the energy and passion of his team. Despite the challenges of the music business today, our partnership with MONTE and his team will assure the strongest possible future for our artists."
