Elektra Entertainment announced the elevation of Jacob Fain to EVP / Head of AandR.

He will remain based in Los Angeles reporting to Elektra President Gregg Nadel.
Nadel said: “Jake is a standout AandR with incredible, creative instincts shaped by years of experience. He has an innate ability to form genuine, meaningful relationships and has helped our artists at every stage of their career articulate their vision and surpass their potential. I’m thrilled for him to take on this much-deserved new post.”
Fain said, “Elektra is building a cutting-edge, forward-thinking record company focused on music that moves culture and developing best in class talent. I’m so proud of the work we have done to serve our artists in an evolving landscape, and to be part of such an incredible team. I’m grateful to Gregg and my Elektra family for this opportunity.”
