CURB | WORD ENTERTAINMENT has elevated SVP/Promotion RYAN DOKKE to SVP/GM Promotion & Marketing, effective immediately. DOKKE fills the vacancy created when TAYLOR CHILDRESS stepped down from the position earlier this year to focus on his family (NET NEWS 1/29). DOKKE was upped to SVP/Promotion in DECEMBER (NET NEWS 12/4/17) after joining CURB as VP/Promotion in 2014 (NET NEWS 6/2/14). In his new role, DOKKE will have day-to-day oversight of label operations in addition to handling SVP/Promotion duties and leading the company’s radio promotion efforts.
“It’s rewarding to see RYAN accept the challenges and opportunities accompanying his new position,” said CURB | WORD ENTERTAINMENT CEO JIM ED NORMAN. “Since coming to CURB four years ago, he has distinguished himself with an uncommon ambitious drive and passion that makes him the obvious choice to lead the effort at creating one heartbeat and focus to be shared between these great companies.” Congratulate DOKKE here.
