Dean Leaves Mercury

Mercury Sr. Dir./Midwest Promotion Charlie Dean has left after 17 years. She joined the imprint in 2003 following time with MCA Nashville, Universal Music & Video Distribution, Colfax/Minneapolis and KCMJ/Palm Springs, CA. "A wise Minnesotan once said, 'The times, they are a'changing,'" Dean tells Country Aircheck. "I have had the honor of representing some amazing Mercury artists and working with some mighty fine human beings over the last 20-plus years. The good times have far outweighed the bad, and I will be forever grateful for the time I have spent here. I'm going to take some time for myself and then see what's next." Reach Dean at 612-718-4406 or via email here. VP/Promotion Damon Moberly is now seeking her successor; contact him here.
