Promotion VP was with label from the start.

Shelia Shipley Biddy has exited Nashville-based independent label Vivaton records, where she had been VP of national promotion and artist development since the label's launch in February 2004. The label is home to Mark Chesnutt and several developing acts.

Prior to joining Vivaton, Shipley Biddy had been senior VP/GM at Decca Records. After leaving that label, she spent five years as a manager of such artists as Jeff Carson and Danni Leigh.
