Venice, the distribution arm of Q&A, founded by Troy Carter and Suzy Ryoo, has established a presence in Atlanta with the announcement of key additions to its team.

J.R. McKee joins as Head of Streaming and Brandon "Reddpush" Terrell has been named Director of A&R.

McKee was most recently Head of Digital Sales & Revenue for Alamo, where he was a primary driver of the label's streaming growth. Terrell has been instrumental to the development of Atlanta's thriving hip-hop scene as an A&R consultant and talent manager.

“J.R. is one of the most talented young executives in the music industry. His vision for artists and passion for the future of music are impressive. His track record of breaking artists speaks for itself, and I’m looking forward to him delivering hits for our premium-services partners at Venice,” said Q&A CEO Carter. “Brandon is a cultural powerhouse in Atlanta. He has a remarkable ability to connect with artists and impeccable taste in music."

“We’re making a significant investment in providing a high level of services alongside our distribution software by adding these two executives to our premium-services team," Carter noted.

Ray Kurzeka, meanwhile, has been promoted to Global Head of Revenue and Service Operations for Venice.
