VP of A&R, Atlantic Records Group
At 29, Aaron Bay-Schuck has made a name for himself at Atlantic Records Group with his signing of Bruno Mars, whose debut album, "Doo-Wops & Hooligans," has sold 1.2 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Another signing, the reconstituted Sublime With Rome, recently dropped its debut. He's also overseen hits for Flo Rida, Plies, B.o.B, Cee Lo Green, Tank, Travie McCoy and others, as well as served as a co-writer on Flo Rida's "Right Round," Plies' "Watch Dis," Toni Braxton's "Rewind" and LMFAO's "All Night Long" from Sorry for Party Rocking. As for the future, "it's a marathon, not a sprint," he says. "The success with Bruno Mars, while incredible, will be that much sweeter if we continue to have success over a long career."
