Replacement will be announced shortly.

Equity Music Group VP of promotion Rick Baumgartner exits the Nashville-based label after just under two years on the job. His replacement will be announced shortly, according to company president Mike Kraski.

Baumgartner, whose resume includes stops at Warner Bros. Nashville, Broken Bow Records, the now defunct Atlantic Nashville and Decca Records, joined Equity in August 2003, not long after the independent label’s launch.
