Pfeifer new topper at H’wood Records

Bob Pfeifer has been named executive vice president of Hollywood Records, heading the diskery and reporting to Walt Disney Co. chairman and chief executive officer Michael D. Eisner and prexy Frank G. Wells.

Pfeifer, 38, has been VP A&R since joining Hollywood Records last August.

He succeeds Wesley Hein as exec VP.

Disney formed Hollywood Records in 1989 to bring Disney into the mainstream of the recorded music business.

“We are delighted to have Bob take charge at Hollywood Records,” said Eisner. “He is a seasoned and successful executive with solid and broad experience in the music industry — having started out as a recording artist himself.”

Pfeifer was previously VP A&R at Epic Records, where he signed Alice Cooper and guided him to platinum album successes. He also signed Screaming Trees, Joe Satriani, Sepultura, Ornette Coleman and Eve’s Plum.

Pfeifer said he is eager to make Hollywood Records a well-respected and sought-after recording company. “We have many excellent people on our staff and many of the ingredients needed to become an aggressive, highly successful organization,” he said. “We are anxious to develop an aggressive, artist-oriented label.”
