There has been no official word, but MusicRow has heard that the realignment at ASCAP Nashville included a number of personnel changes today, most notably in the writer rep department. Thought to be exiting due to this re-organization are Herky Williams, John Briggs, Pat Rolfe, Dan Keen and Charlene Wilhite. Remaining on board are Ralph Murphy, Mike Sistad, and Jesse Willoughby.
On Feb. 22 ASCAP CEO John LoFrumento announced an expansion of the company’s Nashville operations to become a Regional Office serving all genres of music. Industry veteran Tim DuBois was appointed Vice President and Managing Executive of the operations. On April 6, LeAnn Phelan, most recently a Writer Producer/Manager with 19 Entertainment, was tapped as Senior Creative Director at ASCAP’s Nashville Regional Office. She reports to DuBois.
