The Curb Group announced a restructuring of top management this afternoon. Dennis Hannon will assume the title Executive Vice President of Strategic Development for Curb Records. With Hannon transitioning from his previous role as General Manager, Jim Ed Norman, CEO of The Curb Group, will expand his role to include the oversight of Curb Records, Sidewalk Records, The Curb Family Foundation, Curb Racing, and Curb Publishing.
Additionally, Taylor Childress, Vice President of Curb Records and Sidewalk Records, will become Vice President of The Curb Group, working alongside Norman.
According to Hannon, “These are challenging times for our industry, and the need for strategic planning and alliances has never been greater. Curb Records has a 50-year history of innovation and success. We have an incredible team of hard working, dedicated and talented artists and employees at Curb. I look forward with great enthusiasm, to the new opportunities ahead.”
Chairman Mike Curb stated, “I am extremely proud and appreciative of all that Dennis has accomplished for this company over the last quarter century. There is no question our company would not be where it is today, if not for his abilities and tireless dedication. I couldn’t think of a more perfect person to tackle the strategic development of Curb Records and help grow our business in new and exciting ways.”
Added Norman, “I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and working closely with Mike for many years. Through music, philanthropy, education and racing, the many contributions Curb has made to Nashville are innumerable and Mike’s continued leadership in the areas of social justice and human rights has been a constant inspiration. It’s an honor to be working with Curb in such a comprehensive and inclusive way. Finding synergies in these areas will be a challenging but exciting opportunity.”
