John Boulos

FMQB has learned and can confirm that veteran record promotion extraordinaire John Boulos will take the reigns as the new EVP of Promotion at Arista Records come January 1st, 2019. He’ll report directly to label President & CEO David Massey.

While an official announcement is pending, early word is that Boulos is in the process of building his team now.

Boulos announced this past summer that he was stepping down from his EVP/Promotion post at RRP/Atlantic Records.

In his last memo to his most recent staff he concluded, “After working at 12 companies in this amazing business, I am excited for lucky number 13, wherever that may be.”

Sony Music Entertainment CEO Rob Stringer had announced the relaunch of Arista Records under the leadership of highly regarded music industry executive David Massey in July.
