A MERGER OF EPIC PROPORTIONS

Epic, 550 Merge Promotion Staffs
Under Hilary Shaev
The promotion departments of sister labels Epic/550 Music have been merged in an effort to tighten the Epic Records Group's team.

The combined promotion crew will work all Epic Records Group releases to radio, video and online. By pooling its resources, Epic will now have one strong, seamless, dedicated team working all of the group's releases, the company said.

"The galvanizing of our two promotion teams will further strengthen the label, and provide our artists and their releases with an even bigger and better effort. This is a very positive move for our label group," Epic Records President Polly Anthony said. "It was that or hand out name tags. I was losing track of who was who."

As part of the reorganization, Hilary Shaev "The Last Dance For Me" will be Executive VP of Promotion. Dan "Mother" Hubbert will oversee the day-to-day activities of the new promo department as Senior VP of Promotion and will report to Shaev. "Hey" Joel "Where You Goin' With That Gun In Your Hand" Klaiman and Rob "From Peter To Pay Paul" Dillman, VPs of Promotion, will report to Hubbert.

Sources said about seven staffers were let go due to the merging of the divisions.
