Lee Leipsner, EVP/Promotion, Columbia Records


Lee Leipsner is one of the music industry's most passionate and respected label executives. He's earned that reputation through a relentless work ethic that began the minute he walked into the mailroom at Capitol/EMI in Washington, DC in 1985. Following a four year stint at Mercury Records in 1989, Lee would eventually find his way to Sony Music in the Big Apple. With the exception of a few years at Epic Records, Lee found out quickly that Columbia Records would become his career home. He's made quite a name for himself rising through the ranks to EVP/Promotion. Along the way he's accrued many accolades and awards including a FMQB Career Achievement Award as the industry's top CHR Promotion Executive. For Lee, it's always been about the music, artists and radio! [more]
