"As we further our leadership in the marketplace, we are continuing to strengthen our operations and services to our partner labels," stated Pritchitt. "David's understanding of today's landscape and record of delivering results make him the clear choice to lead our business development efforts."
"Having the opportunity to continue working with such a strong, high energy team and such a diverse label roster is tremendously exciting," added Zierler.
