Jackie Jones has been promoted to Senior Vice President of Artist & Industry Relations at the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
Following a 17-year-tenure at Viacom’s CMT, Jones joined the RIAA in April 2019. She has since executed notable events, created artist partnerships and helped generate music business opportunities for students at Tennessee State University. Additionally, as part of the RIAA Gold & Platinum program, Jones recently helped honor Missy Elliott as the only female hip-hop artist with six Platinum-certified albums. In September, she led RIAA Honors: Pioneers of Hip-Hop, including Grandmaster Flash and MC Lyte, at a celebration in Washington, D.C.
Based in Nashville, Jones remains the association’s chief representative in the market and has successfully built relationships with artists and their teams across the U.S. in support of RIAA’s advocacy mission.
“Jackie is a championing force whose deep ties in Music City are unparalleled. Her creativity and ability to engage labels, artists and community partners is a great asset to the work of RIAA. We are delighted to celebrate her talents with this promotion,” says RIAA’s Chief Policy Officer Morna Willens.
“While at RIAA, I have learned how vital it is to help policymakers understand the ways labels support and partner with artists and all the work our industry does to strengthen and grow the creative community and economy. Advocating on behalf of the recorded music industry every day is an honor. I look forward to fostering an even more inclusive community that knows the importance of supporting and protecting the rights of creators and innovators,” Jones adds.
