Fusion Music has promoted Chris Ferren to Vice President, Artist & Business Development.
Formerly in the position of Manager, Ferren will continue running lead on management duties for country music icon Martina McBride and emerging pop artist Jeffrey James. In his new role, Ferren will also lead company operations and provide guidance for the artist management roster with emphasis on lifestyle business extensions and brand partnerships.
The Johnson City, Tennessee, native began his industry career as Fusion’s first intern in 2014. Ferren was named as part of MusicRow‘s N.B.T. Industry Directory Class of 2022 late last year.
With the announcement, he also becomes the company’s first promotion to an executive level.
“Chris’ passion for music and compassion for artists have molded him into a very savvy strategist and marketer,” says Managing Partner Daniel Miller. “Our team and artists have come to lean on him for guidance and inspiration. He has earned this new position all on his own and will be instrumental in leading us into our new endeavors ahead.”
“I’m honored and humbled to have the opportunity to step into this new position,” adds Ferren. “The team and culture that Daniel has built at Fusion Music is truly special and one of a kind. I’m excited to play a role in Fusion’s continued growth and actively work to serve both our clients and our exceptional team.”
