February 2, 2017 Rostrum Records has announced that Jonathan Partch has been named General Manager. Partch joined the label in 2015 as Vice President of Marketing and Sales.
Prior to joining Rostrum, Jonathan was the GM of Adam Levine's 222 Records. He began his career at Interscope Records in 2000, transitioning into a marketing role at A&M Records under Ron Fair in 2003.
"Jonathan has been such an amazing addition to our team, and I'm very excited that he has agreed to help lead our label into the future as Rostrum's GM. Jonathan has seen the industry from many different angles over the years as both a label executive and a manager, and he has a wealth of knowledge to share with our artists and the rest of our team. He's also an awesome guy, in general." says Rostrum Records Founder/President, Benjy Grinberg.
"From my time at Interscope/A&M under the tutelage of Ron Fair, to my days at 222 Records with Jordan Feldstein and Adam Levine, I've been able to learn from very influential and brilliant people in the music business. To work with such a highly intelligent, motivated, thoughtful, and true music person like Benjy Grinberg is not only an honor for which I am very grateful, but, an opportunity that will undoubtedly help me further grow as an executive."
2016 was an exciting year for Rostrum,with releases for recent signings such as Mike Taylor and BRĂVES.
