January 4, 2011 at 9:50 AM (PT)
Music industry veteran SUZANNE DURHAM is leaving her post as Northeast Promotion & Marketing Director at SHOW DOG-UNIVERSAL, to work directly for flagship artist TOBY KEITH, and with KEITH’s manager TK KIMBRELL and TKO MANAGEMENT. DURHAM will be still working with the label as well, as she explains:
“It's the best of both worlds,” said SUZANNE. “As I get to continue to work with TOBY and people I love at both radio and the label, doing a job I love, but with a greater creative element added in. The job will evolve as we go along. But basically, I'll be working hand in hand with the label on TOBY’s behalf. Mainly I will focus on airplay with a more radio specific creative/marketing slant. In addition, for the last five years or so, I've worked along with TK KIMBRELL /TKO ARTIST MANAGEMENT on creating/implementing his national tour/radio promotions for the label, and will continue to do that as well. Honestly, I'm excited about the endless possibilities of working with a superstar that has the "brand" power that TOBY does. I'm excited and filled with gratitude about this new path.”
DURAHM’s career stops include posts at UNIVERSAL DISTRIBUTION, then joining DREAMWORKS/NASHVILLE as Southwest Regional in 1998. She moved to SHOWDOG, when KEITH launched the imprint in SEPTEMBER of 2005.
