Veteran Music Row firm announces key departmental promotions
(Nashville, Tenn. – April 27, 2011) The AristoMedia Group is marking its 31st anniversary in the music and entertainment industry this week with several key departmental promotions.
“I am thrilled that this company is able to stand here and reflect on more than three decades serving the entertainment community in Nashville and beyond,” says AristoMedia President and CEO, Jeff Walker. “I’m extremely proud of this staff and the reputation and relationships AristoMedia has built in this industry.”
The Nashville-based company was initially founded as a public relations firm, but steadily grew into a multi-faceted media, marketing and promotion company since its start in April 1980. The AristoMedia Group currently houses five specialized departments: Aristo P.R. (publicity and PR), AristoVideo (video promotion and marketing), AristoWorks (new media), Marco Promotions (secondary radio promotion) and Marco Club Connection (dance venue marketing).
“I think this company has always been opportunistic, and that’s been a large component of our success over the years,” continues Walker. “I honestly believe that the recent economic downturn is behind us, and we are on the upswing in our industry and here at AristoMedia. Because of that, I have taken the opportunity to review our staff alignment and announce several promotions within the company.”
In the Aristo P.R. department, Walker announced the promotion of Sr. Publicist Christy Watkins to Sr. Director/Publicity, while Ryan Moore assumes the role of Publicist and Media Relations Manager.
