Martens Upped To National At WAR

WAR Southeast regional Tom Martens has been upped to Dir./National Promotion, succeeding Jordan Pettit, who now leads the company's "Team WEA" (CAT 5/28). "With Tom being a lifelong Minnesota Vikings fan, this will likely be the only thing he has to celebrate this year, other than more No. 1 singles," jokes VP/National Promotion Chris Palmer. Martens joined the company nearly two years ago (CAT 9/14/12) after prior stops at Interscope and Universal Republic. Congratulate him here. No word on the label's plans to cover his region.
