DIAMONDS ARE A LABEL’S BEST FRIEND

Since the bestowing of a Diamond Award, commemorating sales of 10 million albums, is a slightly rarer sight these days than, say, a unicorn pooping rainbows in the Everglades, it’s little wonder Columbia chief Rob Stringer, megastar Adele and an array of other important peeps assembled for this populous photo op.

Seen just before the confetti cannons went off are (l-r) September Management’s Rose Moon, Columbia EVP/GM Joel Klaiman, Stringer, Sony Music EVP/GM of Sales Darren Stupak, Adele, BT PR’s Benny Tarantini, Sony Entertainment capo Michael Lynton, September Management’s Jonathan Dickins, Columbia EVP Marketing Doneen Lombardi, EVP Promo Lee Leipsner, Sony SVP International Marketing Jenifer Mallory, and Columbia VP Marketing Erika Alfredson, SVP Digital Marketing Kathy Baker and SVP Sales Liberty Lucken.
