Imagem Music, the pop division of independent publisher Imagem Music Group, has appointed Jason Jordan as its new US president.
Jordan is a seasoned industry veteran and co-founder of software platform SynchTank. Based in New York, he will be responsible for overseeing the A&R activity and creative strategy for the US Pop division.
Jordan started his career more than 25 years ago by founding punk rock label Watermark Records and his own boutique music publishing company Earthprogram Music, both while attending high school and college and learning the ropes at RykoMusic.
He then served as A&R Director at Columbia Records, working with EDM legends like Josh Wink and Armand Van Helden. In 1998 Jordan joined Hollywood Records/Disney Music Group as Vice President A&R, a role he held for almost 14 years, discovering and working with talent with sales in excess of 10 million records.
Jordan also helped finance the launch of SynchTank, a cloud-based software platform that gives catalogues and rights holders an interactive portal to organize, manage, pitch, deliver, license and sell their creative digital assets.
Andre de Raaff, Imagem Group CEO said “We are very happy how our Imagem Music Pop business has developed during the last few years in the US, with signings such as Mark Ronson, John Shanks and seminal catalogues like Elvis Presley and Sammy Cahn and of course the success of Daft Punk in 2013; however we want our US company to focus even more on the A&R activities of our current and new roster.
“This has led our long search for finding the right candidate to Jason, whom Iâ€™m convinced will do an excellent job.”
“Andre and his team at Imagem have built a dynamic multi-national company with a fabulous catalogue of songs and roster of writers,” Jason Jordan, Imagem Music U.S. President said.
“It is with great pleasure that I join them in growing and nurturing Imagem Music’s creative vision and brand.”Music Business Worldwide
