"We feel that Dorothy represents who we are and where we are going. She will provide us with the strong leadership and excellent vision that is required as we expand the role of our digital department."
"In my role, I'll be overseeing digital marketing for our label and artist family, looking for new ways to deliver music and promote our artists," Hui said. "One of my main goals is to seek opportunities to expand and integrate brand partnerships into our digital efforts."
