RCA has brought in, from left, Damaris Rex-Taylor and Phil Youngman in Marketing and Promotions under Stacey Tang and  David Dollimore. 

The team at RCA Records UK has grown with the appointment of Damaris Rex-Taylor, who joins from Disturbing London as Director of Marketing, and Phil Youngman, formerly of Atlantic Records, as Director Of Promotions. The duo both report to MD Stacey Tang.

Rex-Taylor, who has 10 years' experience across music marketing and management, was most recently General Manager at Disturbing London, where she worked alongside co-Founders Dumi Oburota and Tinie Tempah. While there, she spearheaded the 360 business strategy and was integral in signing a recent joint venture with Warner Music. Prior to that, Rex-Taylor was Senior Marketing Manager at Parlophone Records, working with artists including Pet Shop Boys, LCD Sound System, Chemical Brothers and Snoop Dogg.

At Atlantic, Youngman has been Head Of Radio Promotions for the last 12 years, where he's played a pivotal role in the success of Ed Sheeran, Stormzy, Jess Glynne, Anne Marie, Plan B and Clean Bandit. With over 20 years' experience in the music business, he previously worked at Columbia, French dance label Distance and Sony's club culture label Higher Ground.

Discussing the new hires, Tang said: “I am thrilled Damaris is joining RCA. We will be a more dynamic label with her intellect and skillset driving the marketing team forward and delivering our artists’ stories. Phil is widely recognised as one of the most dynamic executives in the business having consistently propelled artists to massive successes throughout his career. I am absolutely delighted that he is bringing his wealth of experience and incomparable energy to RCA. His collaborative team spirit and strategic approach will enhance our promotions teams and reinforce RCA’s stature as a progressive label.”
