Aaron W. Levy was appointed vice chairman and chief operating officer of Elektra Entertainment yesterday, continuing the recent shakeup in the company’s management operations.

Levy, formerly executive VP and chief financial officer at the label, will now oversee business affairs, and will continue to be responsible for all financial, administrative and business functions.
