Warner Music Nashville Chairman and CEO John Esposito announced the appointment of Shane Tarleton to the newly created position of SVP Artist Development. In its commitment to supporting artist progression and improving team structures, WMN will reformat the existing Brand Management department to better harness the marketing and creative muscle of the company. Under Tarleton’s direction, brand sponsorship, marketing, digital interactive and creative services will all fall within the purview of Artist Development.
“Shane’s creativity, leadership and community involvement render him exquisitely tailored for this position, but it is his artist-sensitive vision that makes him uniquely qualified for such an important role,” said Esposito. “For seven years Shane has been able to translate concepts into video and design realities on behalf of each individual artist. It is only natural that he should expand on that incredible perceptiveness in a larger way, for the benefit of both the company and, more importantly, the artists we serve.”
Tarleton joined Warner Music Nashville as Creative Director in 2010. He was upped from Vice President to Senior Vice President, Creative Services just last month. “I am honored to have this amazing opportunity. We have stellar artists and a brilliant staff and it’s a dream to lead this team to many successes!”
