Katie Dean has been named Vice President, Promotion for MCA Records Nashville, replacing Van Haze who recently vacated the post.

Dean has dedicated the past ten years to UMG Nashville, with her most recent role being Vice President of Radio Marketing. She brings over two decades of experience, having held prior positions with AristoMedia, the CMA, Lyric Street Records and MediaBase.

“For 10 years now, Katie has established herself a critical part of our daily operations and strategy,” said Royce Risser UMG Nashville’s Senior Vice President of Promotion. “She has proven over and over that she is a fierce competitor, a tireless worker, and most importantly, a class act. I am thrilled to be handing her the reigns of MCA Promotion. I am more than confident that she will make an immediate impact and lead this staff into a great new era.”

“This roster is stacked with both country music legends and future superstars of the format, and I’m excited to continue MCA’s legacy of excellence with our team,” said Dean.

MCA Nashville is label home to Gary Allan, Clare Dunn, Vince Gill, Sam Hunt, Kip Moore, David Nail, George Strait and Josh Turner.
