ROC TAPS TANDEM TO TOP LABEL

Roc Nation has tapped Shari Bryant and upped Omar Grant to Co-Presidents of the Roc Nation Label.

“There is no better way to celebrate my 20th anniversary in the music business than to return home," declared Bryant, who began her career in the dawning days of the millennium as an intern at Roc-a-Fella Records. She later worked in various marketing capacities at Def Jam, Warner Bros., Atlantic and United Masters and was GM/Partner at Alamo Records. She added, "I am honored to make even more history with my family."

Grant was a road manager for Destiny’s Child before segueing to A&R at EMI Pub and Epic; he landed at Roc Nation nine years ago and has worked on projects for Rihanna, Big Sean, Shakira and more, served in management and inked DJ Mustard and Grammy-winner Tainy to RN. "After nine incredible years here, it's an unbelievable honor to step into this new role," he said. "Inspiration comes from the top down at Roc Nation, and the founders set a precedent for a culture of progress in terms of both business and creativity. That's a legacy I'm humbled to uphold and extend as Co-President.” 

"Shari and Omar love culture and all it encompasses," proclaimed President of A&R and RN Co-Founder Tyran Smith. "Both are consummate professionals who understand and respect artists and their process. It's an honor to work alongside and see them at the helm, poised to usher in the next Roc Nation generation. I have promised both of them that they’ll never have to deal with the idiots at HITS."
