In a surprise move longtime promotion veteran John Boulos has announced that he is stepping down from his EVP/Promotion post at RRP/Atlantic Records. He’ll exit the company after 11 years at the end of September. He made the announcement via a memo to his staff and his Atlantic family on Monday night.
After a lot of thought and consideration, I have decided that as of September 30th, I will be leaving the company to pursue my next big adventure. In a long career that has taken me through a lot of fantastic labels, I can say that the past 11 years here at Atlantic have been truly the most incredible. I have watched us grow into the top label in the business with the best executives and staff, and of course, the most amazing artists. I want to thank Craig Kallman, Julie Greenwald and Mike Easterlin for allowing me to join them on this journey. I now look forward to the next challenge, a new chance to build something unforgettable. After working at 12 companies in this amazing business, I am excited for lucky number 13, wherever that may be.
