Round Hill Records has added industry veteran Brian Hay as the company’s new Head Of Catalog. Hay will relocate from Los Angeles to Nashville, the company’s new headquarters, to develop product and marketing plans around the Round Hill Records’ growing catalog. He will also seek out catalogs acquisitions and find new ways to help artists grow their audience and revenue.
Prior to joining Round Hill, Hay was Sr. VP Commerce, Consumption & New Business at Rhino Records. Before that, he spent almost a decade as VP of Global Account Management for WEA at iTunes.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Brian to our growing Round Hill Records team given his vast experience in modernizing catalog recordings for the digital age. His leadership skills, rational demeanor, and genuine passion for music history make him an ideal fit to oversee all aspects of our catalog division. We’re also stoked that Brian will be joining us here in Nashville at our new label HQ,” says Joe Calitri, president of Round Hill Records.
“I’ve been really lucky to live in so many amazing places doing something I love: selling and marketing great music,” adds Hay. “The chance to live in a music first town like Nashville and get to work at an ambitious and rapidly growing label like Round Hill was just what I wanted as my next chapter. I worked with Joe when he was at FBR. He is a strategic leader who loves music and cares about people.”
