Veteran sales and marketing executive Dan Anderson has joined BIG Label Records. Anderson, most recently VP of Sales at Black River Entertainment, moves to BIG Label Records in a similar role effective immediately.
Prior to Black River, as an artist manager, Anderson worked at Morress Nanas Entertainment and Red Light Management and was Director of Artist Development and Marketing at Sony Music/BNA Records.
“I’ve known Dan since the late 1990s both professionally and personally. He’s hard working and innovative with a keen eye towards the future and firm knowledge of the past and present. He’s creative and disciplined and he’ll fit right in with what we’re doing with Aaron Watson and the new acts that we’ll be adding to the label,” says BIG Label Records head Tony Morreale.
“Tony and I go back 20 plus years,” adds Anderson. “I have admired him throughout his career as he has always looked at things from a different angle. I look forward to working him and the rest of the team as we continue to build Aaron Watson’s career as well as prospective artists we work with in the future.”
The move to BIG Label Records reunites Anderson and Morreale who worked together for nearly eight years at BNA in artist development and promotion respectively.
Morreale remarks, “We had some great times as part of the team that broke Chesney and Lonestar. There was a lot optimism in the business then and Dan brings that fire to an already dynamic and energetic group at BIG Label Record. We’re glad to have him!”
“In Watson’s organization, we always work off the premise that great people are the foundation for building great businesses,” adds CDA Entertainment’s Gino Genaro, Watson’s longtime manager. “There is no doubt that Dan is a multi-talented star, bringing a multitude of skills to the table. As we continue to build to a full service label, we are thrilled at the opportunity to have him join the team.”
