As first tipped here two days ago (NET NEWS, 5/4), UNIVERSAL MOTOWN RECORDS has officially promoted TODD GLASSMAN to SVP/Promotion. In this new role, GLASSMAN, who came to the label as VP/Top 40 Promotion in 2007, will now oversee promotion at Top 40, Rhythm Crossover, Rock and Adult formats.
"Since joining UNIVERSAL MOTOWN just two years ago, TODD has played an invaluable role in the success of our promotion team," UNIVERSAL MOTOWN Pres. SYLVIA RHONE said. "He sees the big picture when working a record, combining a wide musical sensibility with extensive radio experience. We are very proud to promote TODD to the post of SVP/Promotion."
"TODD has shown himself to be a tremendous leader and manager during his time at UNIVERSAL MOTOWN," GM ANDREW KRONFELD added. "His ability to creatively work with both artists and radio is not something that is very common, and we are very excited for him as he takes this great step forward."
"I'd like to thank SYLVIA RHONE and ANDREW KRONFELD for this wonderful opportunity," GLASSMAN said. "They have created a productive and creative company culture at UNIVERSAL MOTOWN and I look forward to playing a larger role in the executive leadership team. I share their vision of artist optimization in a competitive marketplace and eagerly await the new challenges that lie ahead."
