Baumgartner Joins Foundry Records

Industry vet Rick Baumgartner has joined recently launched Foundry Records (CAT 9/30/19) as Dir./National Promotion. "[Rick's] knowledge of the music industry is an asset, and he is respected throughout the community," says GM Cole Johnstone. The move reunites Baumgartner and Foundry VP/Marketing & Promotion April Rider, who previously worked together at Decca. Baumgartner's prior stops include Warner Bros., Atlantic, Broken Bow, Equity, Black River and HitShop. He stepped away from the music business in 2014 to join Nat Sherman International as Regional Premium Cigar Sales Representative (CAT 10/27/14). Reach Baumgartner here.
