MUTE RECORDS has promoted MONA DEHGHAN to Dir./Marketing/Project Management and named JARED DIONNE Dir./Publicity for MUTE USA. Both will be based at the company's NEW YORK office.
MONA join MUTE in 2014 as Dir./Publicity U.S., where she oversaw national press campaigns for label artists M83, NEW ORDER, GOLDFRAPP and MOBY. Prior to joining MUTE, she was Dir./ Radio Promotions at GIRLIE ACTION, Project Manager at DOMINO RECORDS and Radio Promoter at SUB POP – all while operating MON AMIE - her record label and events company.
“MONA has proven to be an invaluable member of the MUTE family and we are thrilled to have her ascending to this new position," MUTE N.A. GM MARK FOTIADIS said. "Her extensive experience in a number of diverse roles throughout the music industry will undoubtedly be an asset from which MUTE will benefit and grow. In this directorial role, she will ensure MUTE continues its history of supporting artistic innovation while adapting to the rapidly changing landscape of music today.”
DIONNE began his career at independent publicity firm NASTY LITTLE MAN, where he managed tour press for acts such as METRIC and VAMPIRE WEEKEND. He then oversaw tour press for U2’s 36-date sold-out iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour in 2015. JARED joined MUTE in early 2016 as a regional and tour publicist where he managed press for NEW ORDER, M83, GOLDFRAPP, YEASAYER, MODERAT and JOSE GONZALEZ, among others.
“We are excited to see two of MUTE’s own step into these new roles," FOTIADIS said. "MONA and JARED’s chemistry during their time as the tag-team publicity department was evident and we look forward to seeing them flourish in their respective positions.”
