BBR/SCR (BROKEN BOW RECORDS/STONEY CREEK RECORDS)/NASHVILLE CEO BENNY BROWN has announced the appointment of JON LOBA as SVP/Label Group of THIS IS HIT INC., the parent company of BBR and STONEY CREEK RECORDS. LOBA will report directly to BROWN, starting TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 1st, 2011.
Since 2007, LOBA has been at The VALORY MUSIC CO.,/NASHVILLE, part of the BIG MACHINE LABEL GROUP as VP/Promotion and Artist Development and, from 2001-2007, was in that same role at BBR. So, this marks a reunion for LOBA with BROWN.
"I am thrilled to have JON LOBA back on our team," says BROWN. "JON has an insurmountable amount of knowledge, talent and passion for this industry. Having him on our team to help with both label imprints will help us continue our company's commitment to excellence."
When LOBA left BBR in 2007, he helped launch The VALORY MUSIC CO. "I want to wish everyone at VALORY MUSIC well and I will forever be proud of what we accomplished together but I'm very excited about my new opportunity," LOBA said in the statement.
LOBA continues, "I cannot express how ecstatic I am to once again work with BENNY BROWN and his team, many whom I have worked with before. They are a passionate and talented group who keep defying the odds. Just look at CMT streams last week ... three videos in the Top 5 ... not to mention two top 5 sales singles. The icing on my cake is being reunited with JASON ALDEAN and the chance to be involved with the careers of THOMPSON SQUARE, JAMES WESLEY and all the BBR/STONEY CREEK artists. I definitely feel like I am coming home and can't wait to get started.”
LOBA can be reached at (615) 244-8600 or email@example.com.
