MCA taps Lambert as sr. promo veep

Exec fills empty spot left by Levin

MCA Records has named Craig Lambert senior promotion veep and charged the music vet with overseeing promotion of its family of labels.

The nod fills the void created by the exit of Nancy Levin, who ankled the key post late last month after creative differences with label management.

“Craig is an aggressive, hands-on promotion exec with a lead by example style,” exec veep Abbey Konowitch told Daily Variety. “We are fortunate he became available.”

Lambert will report to Konowitch and MCA Records prexy Jay Boberg while working closely with label department heads.

MCA is currently riding high with successful discs from the Roots, New Radicals and Sammy Hagar, among many others.

Lambert, former veep and G.M. of Trauma Records, had been in talks with Priority Records when the MCA gig opened.

He boasts strong staff management skills and experience in a variety of major label posts.

“This reunites me with many fine people I’ve worked with in the past,” said Lambert. “We have an abundance of great music to work with.”
