Q PRIME announce additions to their promotion team in further focusing their efforts on the Q PRIME management roster and its independent record label, MOM + POP MUSIC.
SVP/Promotion WARREN CHRISTENSEN, VP/Promotion MICHELLE MUNZ, and Director/Radio Promotion ERICA COLLINS are joined by NEW YORK-based TRINA SCHAEFER, who was recently named National Hot AC, AC & Video Promotion post (NET NEWS 4/22). SCHAEFER was previously Sr. Director/Adult Formats at ISLAND DEF JAM MUSIC GROUP.
Joining NASHVILLE-based DEVIN ROSEVEAR on newly assembled Q PRIME's regional team are CLEVELAND-based ERIN GELLERT, ST. LOUIS-based CHRIS FRANK and BOSTON-based MICHAEL FANG.
GELLERT was last at EPIC RECORDS as Midwest Regional, FRANK joins from UNIVERSAL MOTOWN where he was Director Of Alternative & Rock Promotion, and FANG segues from RED Nat'l Radio/Promotion.
"Although the music industry has contracted over the past several years, Q PRIME’s services have never been more in demand due to the full-service management model we offer all of our clients," said CHRISTENSEN. "That, in addition to the speed at which MOM + POP has been breaking new artists, has necessitated not only that our team focus solely on our own artists, but also that we expand the team itself. We are excited to welcome this amazing group of individuals who will each work to continue our long track record of success."
As a team, CHRISTENSEN, MUNZ, and COLLINS have been an integral part -- along with their respective label partners -- in breaking MUSE, THE BLACK KEYS, SILVERSUN PICKUPS, and CAGE THE ELEPHANT, at radio, as well as scoring over 30 #1 tracks at multiple radio formats with the aforementioned artists, as well as superstar artists METALLICA and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS.
