REPUBLIC VET BRETT
GETS EVP STRIPES

Republic has upped Brett Alperowitz to EVP, A&R. He’ll report to President, West Coast Creative, Wendy Goldstein, who made the announcement. The NYC-based exec was elevated to SVP A&R in 2015.

Alperowitz, who’s been part of House Lipman since the label's 1995 launch (he was its third employee), will remain GM of the Casablanca Records imprint while inking and developing new acts for the mothership. His signings include 2020 breakout BENEE as well as Milky Chance, Volbeat and more. As for Casablanca, he's scored with Tiësto, Felix Jaehns, SG Lewis and, of course, an abiding friendship with Claude Rains.

"Brett has been integral to the success of both Republic and Casablanca,” reads a quote from Goldstein. "He’s consistently identified, signed and developed career artists who have left an indelible impact on music. This keen instinct and his die-hard work ethic are traits that galvanize the entire A&R department. I’m honored to announce Brett's much-deserved promotion."

"It’s been an incredible journey with Republic," goes Alperowitz’s quote. "Monte, Avery and Wendy are visionaries and innovators. I’m grateful for their continued support and leadership. Now more than ever, we're focused on developing and breaking essential artists. Our creative objectives can’t be achieved without an elite marketing, promotion and legal team, with whom I am extremely fortunate to work. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m compiling a list of possible cuts for the Chumbawamba Christmas album."
