RIAA expands Flatow’s duties

New job entails West Coast contacts and heading discussions

The Recording Industry Assn. of America has expanded the role of L.A.-based exec Joel Flatow to include the title of general manager, West Coast affairs, as the org makes an effort to beef up ties to its members across the country.

Flatow, who will retain his existing post as the RIAA’s senior VP for artist and industry relations, will serve as a point of contact for members of the org based in the West. He’ll also host industry forums, panels and discussion sessions in L.A. on topics relevant to the music biz.

Exec has been with the RIAA since 1995. Prior to being tapped to run the West Coast office in April 2000, he worked primarily with Congress to represent the music org’s interests, including passage of the 1998 Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

Before he signed on at the trade group, Flatow was legislative director of the Congressional Arts Caucus, a bipartisan clearinghouse for legislative information on the arts.
