Warner Music Nashville promotes veteran employee

Ex-Sony Music official to serve as VP of radio promotion

Warner Music Nashville announced today it has promoted Jordan Pettit to vice president, radio promotion.

Pettit, who previously served as national director of radio promotion, will oversee WMN’s new radio promotion division called Team WEA (one of WMN’s three radio promotion teams). As such, he will oversee efforts on behalf of artists spanning WMG’s country divisions, including Atlantic, Elektra, and Warner Bros.

Pettit, who was hired in late 2011 and started his career at Sony Music Nashville, will report to Kevin Herring, WMN senior vice president and head of promotion, who will oversee the three-team promotion structure.

“Jordan is beyond deserving of this opportunity,” Herring said in a release. “The choice was obvious considering what a passionate, competitive, and thorough promotion executive he is. I look forward to working with him in his newly expanded role.”
