We are elated to share that we have made senior hires in Los Angeles and New York for Symphonic Distribution.
We have hired former Orchard executive Nick Gordon as Chief Client Officer and former Universal Music exec Jaime Feldman as Content Development Specialist, in New York and Los Angeles, respectively, as part of our ongoing company expansion.
Gordon, who will be leading our New York location, is the former VP, Client Services at The Orchard, and was pivotal to the company’s explosive client and technology growth that led to its acquisition by Sony Music. His previous experience includes working as a Distributed Labels Manager at Caroline Distribution, focused on their hip-hop and electronic music clients. He will be defining our core client strategy and expanding the company’s New York footprint.
“I am thrilled to have Nick as a part of Symphonic. He brings a tremendous amount of experience, energy and creativity to the organization and will help make the New York region a major and important part of the company’s future,” said Jorge Brea, CEO of Symphonic Distribution.
“I’m delighted to be joining Symphonic at this exciting moment in their trajectory,” said Gordon. “Jorge and his team have built an amazing foundation, and I’m excited to help them build a growth strategy that aligns with the current needs of the independent artist and music community.”
Jaime Feldman is the company’s first hire in Los Angeles and will be tasked with growing Symphonic’s client roster in Los Angeles and drawing from his vast experience to shape Symphonic’s future A&R strategy. Feldman was previously Senior Director, A&R at Universal Music and Director, A&R at Capitol Music before joining Symphonic.
“Alongside Nick, having Jaime as a part of Symphonic will help the organization reach new heights and connect us to a new and exciting client base,” said Brea. “Jaime’s experience and track record speaks for itself and we’re excited to see what he will contribute to us.”
“I’m tremendously excited to come on board at Symphonic at a key time for them and help add to the growth and prosperity they have seen over the past several years,” said Feldman. “At a time in the music business when artists and independent labels have thrived the most outside of the major label system, Symphonic is a great company for those that wish to keep their autonomy yet have a stellar team behind them to support in every way possible.”
