Mike Easterlin, Head of Promotion at Roadrunner Records, has been elevated to the GM post at the label succeeding label President Jonas Nachsin. As reported yesterday, Nachsin is stepping down after over two decades at Roadrunner, including the last 12 as its President.
Last month, Easterlin was named GM of sister label Fueled By Ramen, following the exit of FBR co-founder John Janik. Easterlin will now oversee both labels, which will reportedly still operate with separate staffs.
Easterlin joined Roadrunner in 2007 as SVP of Promotion, when the label's promotion team merged with Lava Records.
