Def Jam Recordings has promoted Nicki Farag to VP/Promotion. Farag is also headed to the West Coast where she will report to EVP/Promotion Rick Sackheim.
“Nicki is a true Def Jam favorite, both among our artists and radio programmers across the board,” said Sackheim. “It has been an inspiration to work together with her in the Promotion Department for a decade now. We are pleased that Nicki will be able to move from New York to Santa Monica as she begins the next step in her outstanding career at Def Jam.”
Farag commented, “I want to thank Steve Bartels and Rick Sackheim for this incredible promotion. Becoming an executive at Def Jam has always been a career goal and I am very proud, thrilled and grateful for this opportunity. I’ve been part of the Def Jam family for 11 years and I look forward to contributing even more to the development and transformation of our artists. With our newly assembled promotion team, I am eager to build and cultivate new relationships while promoting our brand and artists. There is a lot to be excited about.”
