July 27, 2011 at 1:46 PM (PT)
After nearly 12 years at ISLAND DEF JAM MUSIC GROUP, the last five as SVP/Promotion, ERIK OLESEN is leaving the label to pursue some extraordinary new opportunities, effective on FRIDAY (7/29).
OLESEN told ALL ACCESS, "It's been an invaluable 12 years working for a lifestyle and culture company that just happens to be selling some amazing music. I want to thank STEVE BARTELS and BARRY WEISS for all of their support, and a big thanks to all of the artists, and much love to my team for making a big difference every day."
Look for OLESEN's replacement to be named, shortly.
