KATZ PAJAMAS: Zach Katz, the man who discovered and developed hit producer/songwriter Jonathan J.R. Rotem, has been named EVP Creative for BMG Chrysalis, where he will oversee the L.A.-based staff, while attracting, developing and signing new talent and managing the current roster. He will report to N.A. President Creative & Marketing Laurent Hubert, while working with the creative executive team of Richard Blackstone, Venus Brown, Darrell Franklin and David Hirshland. He joins BMG from Beluga Heights, a company he founded in 2006 with J.R. and Tommy Rotem. "Zach is a highly respected player with a proven track record in signing and developing top talent.
