Big Machine Label Group, a subsidiary of HYBE America, has added Ryan Dokke as Vice President, Promotion & Marketing, for the BMLG Records imprint effective immediately.
Reporting directly to BMLG Records President/CEO Jimmy Harnen, Dokke will support the label’s roster, which includes five-time Grammy award-winning trio Lady A, multi-Platinum-selling vocalist Brett Young, ACM award-winner Riley Green, and rising female vocalist Laci Kaye Booth.
Dokke most recently served as CEO of Dallas Davidson‘s Play It Again Music following prior stops at Curb | Word Entertainment (Curb Records) and Sony Music Nashville (Arista Records). Dokke can be reached at [email protected].
“I first met Ryan while he was working in radio and have considered him a friend for over a decade,” shares Harnen. “I’ve watched him rise through the ranks, expand his knowledge and succeed in very challenging times. I am confident he will continue leading this team at the level that Matthew Hargis did over the past 12 years.”
“First, I salute and honor Matthew Hargis and the tremendous leadership he has provided over the past decade,” adds Dokke. “I am deeply honored to have the opportunity to contribute to the legacy of BMLG Records and advocate on behalf of this incredible artist roster. I am excited to work with this team of professionals and can’t thank Scott Borchetta and Jimmy Harnen enough for their belief that I am the right person for this role!”
Hargis served as the former Sr. VP of Promotion and Marketing at the Big Machine Label Group imprint BMLG Records. He announced his exit from the company earlier this month.
