Big Machine Label Group Mgr./A&R Laurel Kittleson has been promoted to Dir./A&R. "Laurel is an A&R force of nature," says BMLG President/CEO Scott Borchetta. "If our records aren't great, nothing else matters and Laurel is a key ingredient to so many of our great recordings which makes her a key ingredient to The Machine." Kittleson joined as Coord./A&R in 2012 after serving as an assistant to Show Dog-Universal President Mark Wright (CAT 3/13/12). Congratulate her here.
