Universal Republic Records, a division of Universal Motown Republic Group (UMRG), has appointed Avery Lipman to co-president and COO of the label, it was announced by Mel Lewinter, chairman of UMRG, and Monte Lipman, president & CEO of Universal Republic.

"Avery is among the very best in the new generation of true record executives," stated Mr. Lewinter. "His rare combination of leadership, creative sensibility and business acumen have been instrumental in helping Universal Republic achieve the success it has in such a short period of time. Over the years, it has been a pleasure to watch him grow into such a universally well-respected record man, known for his remarkable ability to identify and develop talent, while bringing innovative and refreshing ideas to well-established acts. He possesses the drive and vision necessary for success, and this expanded role will recognize and make even greater use of his many talents."
"I am thankful to Doug Morris (Chairman & CEO, Universal Music Group) and Mel for their continued support and encouragement," added Mr. Lipman. "Working with Mel and Monte to build Universal Republic has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. And I am thrilled to have the opportunity to continue working closely with them and our dynamic staff to further expand the reach of our artists in the physical and digital marketplaces."
