PROMOTIONS AT POLYDOR
4/29/20

Polydor Records in the U.K. has upped Lucy Dann and Stephen Hallowes to Marketing Directors.

The promotions recognize the significant contributions the duo have made to shaping the label's run of success over the last three years.

Under the co-Presidency of Tom March and Ben Mortimer, the Polydor team has enjoyed a #1 album for Sam Fender, two Brits Rising Star winners in Fender and Celeste, a Top 3 debut album for BRIT winner Mabel, and Billie Eilish's #1 and BRIT-winning debut. They've also worked on three consecutive #1 albums for Eminem, two consecutive #1 albums for Lana Del Rey, and campaigns for artists including The 1975James Blake, Michael Kiwanuka and others.

“It’s wonderful to see the label enjoying big successes,” March said. “None of that would have been possible without Lucy and Stephen. They are central to the results we achieve as a label.”

Hallowes, formerly Head of Digital, joined the label as Digital Marketing Manager in 2009; Dann, formerly Head of Marketing, joined in 2012 as Marketing Manager.
