LIPMANS NOW BROTHERS-IN-ARMS AT UNI REP
Avery Named Universal Republic Co-President by Lewinter, Monte Lipman
O brother, where art thou?

At Universal Republic Records, that's where.

Forming the most potent sibling combo since the Coens, Avery Lipman has been named Co-President of the label by UMRG Chairman Mel Lewinter and his bro, President/CEO Monte.

Lipman had served as Senior Vice President of the label.

 

Along with Monte, Mr. Lipman will oversee the management and creative operations of the label, which features Amy Winehouse, Jack Johnson, Colbie Caillat, Hinder, Mika, Damian Marley, Godsmack, 3 Doors Down and India Arie, among many others.

 

Commented Lewinter: “Avery is among the very best in the new generation of true record executives. His rare combination of leadership, creative sensibility and business acumen have been instrumental in helping Universal Republic achieve the success it has in such a short period of time. Over the years, it has been a pleasure to watch him grow into such a universally well-respected record man, known for his remarkable ability to identify and develop talent, while bringing innovative and refreshing ideas to well-established acts.  He possesses the drive and vision necessary for success, and this expanded role will recognize and make even greater use of his many talents. Must be in the genes.”

 

Added Avery: “I am thankful to Doug Morris and Mel for their continued support and encouragement. Working with Mel and Monte to build Universal Republic has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. And I am thrilled to have the opportunity to continue working closely with them and our dynamic staff to further expand the reach of our artists in the physical and digital marketplaces. Too bad mom always liked him best.”

 

Lipman began his music industry career in the Business Affairs department of Arista Records.  In 1990, he was appointed Director of Business Administration for Sony Music International. Along with brother Monte, he co-founded Republic Records, leaving Sony in 1998 to become GM of Republic, and in January 2000, when the label became an imprint of Universal Records, he was named Republic's SVP. Subsequently, in 2006, Mr. Lipman was named to a similar post at the newly established Universal Republic Records.
