Exceleration Music, a recently launched venture that invests in independent labels, has appointed Britnee Foreman as its Head of Data Strategy and Digital Operations.
Foreman is US-based Exceleration’s first senior hire and will spearhead its operating initiatives concerning data management and optimisation, initially focused on launch partners Alligator Records, Candid Records and The Ray Charles Foundation.
Exceleration says that more partnerships are expected in the coming months.
Exceleration launched in January of this year. The company offers “personalized solutions to entrepreneurs seeking capital to achieve growth” that “preserves and enhances the legacies of both the entrepreneurs and their artists alike,” states Exceleration.
At Exceleration, Foreman joins a partnership of global music industry leaders. This includes Dave Hansen (former GM of Epitaph Records and Executive Chairman of Merlin), Charles Caldas (the first CEO of Merlin), Amy Dietz (previous GM of Ingrooves) and John Burk (Grammy-winning producer and former President of Concord Records).
“I am delighted to be joining a team of industry powerhouses who are truly passionate for the mission at hand.”
