NEW YORK, NY (January 26, 2016) – Atlas Music Publishing announces three new additions to its team and a number of promotions. Veteran A&R man and manager, Chris Jones, has partnered with Atlas in Atlanta, forming State Line / Atlas with a focus on Urban/Pop music. Rob Levin joins Atlas’ LA team in the Creative Synch department, and Andy Golden joins the Operations team in NYC.
In addition to adding new faces, Atlas has also promoted a number of its staff. Ryan Brodhead is now VP Licensing, Administration and Royalties (formerly, Snr Director). Molly Seel Jonke, Jake Simon and Kristen Bushnell have been elevated to Directors within the Creative / Synch teams (formerly, Snr Managers). Finally, Caitlin Haurie has been promoted to Coordinator within the Creative Synch team in NY (formerly, assistant).
“What separates Atlas from the rest comes down to the team. To be successful and create a truly proactive home for our writers, it is imperative that we have the right staff in the right positions. I constantly hear about companies downsizing and staff having to handle twice the workload, which of course is terrible for both the staff and the artists. These additions and promotions reflect Atlas’ commitment to building a well thought out staff that does the best job possible for our clients,” said Richard Stumpf, CEO of Atlas.
