Ryan Dokke, formerly Arista Manager of Regional Promotion, has joined Curb Records as Vice President of Promotion.

“Ryan is a natural born leader. His tenacity and drive combined with his love of music make him perfectly suited to meet the demands of this rapidly changing industry. The Curb Group’s enterprises are numerous and extend to many areas, from music to motorsports to education and beyond. We’ve been searching for a candidate with the vision to actuate the many varied opportunities available here and we found that in Ryan,” Jim Ed Norman says of the appointment.

“Ryan is known for his passion and his dogged determination, both of which will serve him well in his new role here,” adds Taylor Childress, Vice President of The Curb Group. “His meteoric rise during his 10 plus years working in radio made him one of the youngest Program Directors in the format– demonstrating his ‘Can Do’ attitude. He has the intelligence and vision needed to lead Curb Records’ promotion efforts. He’s also a great human being and is lauded industry-wide for his solid character. I cannot think of a more perfect choice to help us usher in a new and exciting era for Curb Records.”

Dokke’s career has included stops at KMPS in Seattle and WKKT in Charlotte. In 2011, he became Manager, Regional Promotion at Arista Nashville.

“In my career I have always pushed myself to aim higher than the bar set in front of me. I am grateful to Mike Curb, Jim Ed and Taylor for giving me the chance to focus my energy on this artist roster. It’s an exciting time to be at Curb Records and I am thrilled to be part of the team,” Dokke says.

Dokke will be based in Nashville at the Curb Records headquarters located at 48 Music Square East, Nashville, TN 37203. He can be reached at [email protected] and 615-321-5080 x207.
