Civil declined to provide details about her new post but presumably she will be based in Los Angeles. At press time, a rep for the company had not responded to Billboard.biz's request for comment.

Last month, longtime Interscope/Geffen exec Luke Wood was appointed president and COO of Beats Electronics, the company started by IGA chairman Jimmy Iovine and rapper-producer Dr. Dre in 2006. Beats Electronics produces Beats by Dre headphones.

Most recently, Civil served as online media coordinator at Young Money Records. In 2008, she founded the hip-hop blog KarenCivil.com. She is also one of Billboard's Twitter 140.
