HORTON ASCENDS
AT REPUBLIC

Republic chief Monte Lipman has pinned EVP stripes on promotion exec Mike Horton. The NYC-based Horton will continue to oversee promo campaigns for releases from Republic and Island hip-hop and R&B artists including Drake, Lil Wayne, The Weeknd, Nicki Minaj and Post Malone as well as such up-and-comers as Jacquees, Kiana Ledé, and Pop Smoke.

“For the past 20 years, Mike has been responsible for breaking the most important artists of this generation,” Lipman noted. “His reputation, tenacity and strategic approach make him a leader among his peers, and his track record and competitive spirit have made a tremendous impact to the overall success of our company.”

“Republic Records has always been forward-thinking,” said Horton. “I enjoy breaking acts more than anything. Monte and Avery Lipman give me the opportunity to introduce the world to new music. That drives me. They’re always striving for the best. It inspires the rest of the team to push the envelope. We’re always looking ahead together, and there’s nothing better.”

Horton has been doing promotion for Republic since 1996. He began his career at Capitol before moving to Interscope in 1992.

In 2019, our friends at Variety named him one of its annual “Hitmakers and Hitbreakers.”
