Independent music/video distributor 101 Distribution has named RICK WILLIAMS General Manager. WILLIAMS boasts over 25 years industry experience, including stints such as GM CAROLINE DISTRIBUTION’s Western territory, as well as its VP/Sales, Marketing and Purchasing.
"RICK is an industry expert who possesses the knowledge and expertise in building, growing and managing a multi-million dollar distribution network driven by a label focus," 101 DISTRIBUTION Exec. Dir. DAMON EVANS said. "I have known RICK for more than 10 years now and he is the very reason why the pre-EMI owned CAROLINE was the last great, independent thinking music distributor."
"I saw immediately that 101 is an innovative, cutting edge company," WILLIAMS said. "It’s a great way of doing things. I don't know of any conventional or digital offering that has as comprehensive a service as 101 does. It’s really exciting to be in front of the mainstream on the independent side of our industry."
