Long-time music executive Jimmy Wheeler has been hired by the Tennessee Entertainment Commission as Director of Business Development for the state of Tennessee’s new Music Office.
The office is opening as part of a new initiative to grow investment and job creation in the music sector. This will be a statewide effort focused on economic development, workforce/education, community resources and legislative initiatives that benefit the music industry directly.
Wheeler, a former Sony Music executive, will work closely with the Department of Community and Economic Development, the Governor’s Office and the Department of Tourist Development to bolster the business of music throughout communities in Tennessee.
“We want music businesses and creators to think of Tennessee first when deciding on where they want to work,” says Wheeler. “We have the resources and infrastructure throughout the state that make us an attractive landing spot.”
