Lindenbaum, Barnabee rise to sr. VP level

NEW YORK — Music major BMG has tapped two executives for a pair of high-level financial positions at its imprints Arista Records and the RCA Label Group-Nashville, respectively.

Arista Records promoted Howie Lindenbaum to senior vice president of finance and administration, based in New York and reporting to exec VP-general manager Larry Mestel. Exec will handle all the finance and administrative duties for the U.S. division of Arista, including info-tech and office services.

Lindenbaum was most recently VP of marketing planning and administration, a post he’s held since 2001. In his 13-year career in the entertainment business, he has held financial posts at Island Records, Island Pictures and later Island founder Chris Blackwell’s Palm Entertainment.

Separately, RLG Nashville topper Joe Galante promoted company vet Paul Barnabee to senior vice president of finance and administration. He will oversee the day-to-day financial health of the division and work jointly with the BMG Strategic Marketing Group to hunt down new opportunities for RLG repertoire.
