Richie Gallo, a longtime exec at Universal Music, has been tapped to foster synergy between Rhino and the other Warner Music Group labels.
Given the title of senior VP of the newly established One Catalog Group at Rhino Entertainment, Gallo will oversee the selling, marketing and developing opportunities for the WMG catalog.
Gallo was most recently exec VP of Universal Music Enterprises’ New Door imprint, a label specializing in heritage artists. Prior to that, he ran UME’s sales and marketing department, and during two periods at A&M Records over 20 years, Gallo was part of and also head of its sales team.
He will report to Kevin Gore, Rhino’s exec VP-general manager.
