SMACKSongs has promoted four members of its publishing team: Lee Krabel to VP of Publishing, Jeremy Groves to Creative Director, Sam Sarno to Creative Manager, and Carly Sater to Creative Coordinator.
Krabel has been with SMACK for five years, and in his time at SMACK has been integral in signing writers like Aaron Eshuis, Ryan Beaver, Emily Falvey, Scott Stepakoff, Josh Dorr, and Tigirlily, and helping secure cuts with Blake Shelton, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Morgan Wallen and Jordan Davis.
“Lee has done a tremendous job leading our publishing team through the pandemic,” says SVP of Development, Robert Carlton. “Through his signings and leadership he’s brought SMACK to its most prosperous time to date. He’s more than earned the VP title. I’m excited to see how he’ll continue to build SMACK in the coming years!”
“I’m so excited for Jeremy, Sam, and Carly. They have grown into three of the best publishers in town in the last year,” says Krabel. “Their passion and hard work for the writers at SMACK has led to one of our best years as a company. Their promotions are well deserved and I can’t wait to see what they will accomplish in the future.”
“When Shane and I started working together almost 15 years ago, we could only dream of SMACK with such a great team,” says Robin Palmer, Chief Creative Officer. “Congrats and thanks to Lee, Jeremy, Sam and Carly for continuing to build a great place for songwriters. That’s what it’s all about.”
