Brian Nolan comes to Capitol after 12 years at Columbia Records/Sony Music, most recently as Columbia's Vice President of International Marketing. In that role, he led the international marketing campaign for David Bowie's album, one of the biggest-selling worldwide releases of 2016. He also led international marketing campaigns for Depeche Mode, John Mayer and Russ, to name a few. Prior to assuming that role, Nolan was Vice President of Sony Music's in-house Creative Agency, where he co-created Culinary Beats - a CITI-branded original series that aired for two seasons on Yahoo! - and On The Road, which aired on The Travel Channel. He is also an Executive Producer of YouTube's Best.Cover.Ever original series, which is airing this Fall.

Among his many achievements within the branding/licensing space, Nolan secured global advertising campaigns for Rachel Platten's "Fight Song" with Ford, Leon Bridges' "Coming Home" for Apple and "River" for Beats by Dre. A leader in the sports marketing space, his countless partnerships with ESPN included a label wide collaboration for the 2014 College Football season.
