Curb Records has elevated Craig Powers to SVP, Media and Lori Hartigan to National Director, Media.
“As we celebrate our 60th year in business, I am thrilled to see our company continue to grow. With the strengthening of our team, Curb Records is poised for a productive future,” shares Mike Curb, Curb Records Chairman.
Powers joined Curb in 2020. Previously serving as VP, Media, he will continue to oversee mainstream/crossover radio success for artists such as Sarah Reeves, Natalie Grant, Wyn Starks and For King + Country.
Hartigan has been with Curb Records for 10 years, working with developing artists like Dylan Scott. She was instrumental in his success at radio and other media platforms, and served the past eight years as Director, West Coast promotion. In her elevated role, Hartigan will renew her commitment to artist development as well as oversee a secondary promotion team for the entire Curb roster.
“I’d like to thank our chairman, Mike Curb, for his confidence in me. I’m so grateful to be working with all of our artists and team members at Curb Records. Lori has years of experience in our industry and is well known for her work in country promotion. I’m thrilled for her to join our media team, bringing her knowledge and expertise to all Curb artists and all formats,” says Powers.
“It’s been an honor to work with Curb’s talented country artists. I’m especially proud of having worked with Dylan Scott from day one and experiencing his growth along the way. I’m looking forward to working with all Curb artists in my new role,” says Hartigan.
Additionally, Todd Thomas will pivot to Director, West Coast Promotion for the label. Thomas has been with Curb since 2013, working in in-house booking and development before joining the promotion team in his previous role in 2019.
The company has also hired Bailey White as Director, Southwest Promotion, working with Scott, Brice, Ellis and Hart, among others. White comes to Curb following three years with Black River Entertainment’s promotion team and over ten years in the country entertainment world. She will report to SVP, Promotion RJ Meacham, rounding out the team that includes Mike Rogers, Allyson Gelnett, Samantha DePrez and Brian Day.
“I am thrilled to welcome Bailey to our country promotion team!” Meacham shares. “With her exceptional relationships and dedication to the job, I know she’ll play an integral role moving the needle for our artists and music with country radio. Additionally, I have full confidence in Todd Thomas as he pivots to the west coast, where he already has strong relationships throughout the region. Together, we’re poised for success and continued growth!”
