September 20, 2011
Interscope Geffen A&M, a division of Universal Music Group, has appointed Jeremy Summers as EVP/Chief Marketing Officer. The announcement was made by Steve Berman, Vice-Chairman, Interscope Geffen A&M, to whom Summers will report directly. Previously, Summers served as SVP of Marketing for Universal Music Canada.
"Firstly, we welcome Jeremy to the Interscope family, a label that he is more than familiar with, having helped successfully brand and develop our artists in the Canadian marketplace for many years," commented Berman. "I would also like to thank Randy Lennox, who has mentored Jeremy into the executive that he is today. Randy is one of the finest executives in our business and his stewardship of Jeremy has benefited our company greatly."
"Jeremy is a modern music executive with a marketing pedigree earned from seventeen years of service to our Canadian company," said Lennox. "He has enriched our business through his acumen and imagination—and will surely do likewise for our cousins Stateside. We shall miss his keen insights and wish him ever greater successes in his continued career with Interscope."
Added Summers, "Jimmy Iovine has built a powerhouse creative team at Interscope Geffen A&M, and it is an absolute honour that he’s entrusting me to work in support of his innovative vision. I’m thankful to Steve Berman for this opportunity, and welcome his guidance as we lead and execute the strategies for our world class artists. I am very grateful to Randy Lennox for his leadership and support and I’ll miss the talented team and friends that I’ve had the pleasure of working with at Universal Music Canada."
Summers began his tenure in the sales department at Universal Music Canada in 1994. He was later promoted to VP of Marketing & Promotion and was promoted last autumn to SVP of Marketing, Universal Music Canada.
