Australian indie dance label Central Station Records' (CSR) managing director Guiseppe Palumbo and GM Morgan Williams will take over the A&R, marketing and promotional duties for sister pop and dance label Collision Records. Collision's sales and distribution will continue to be handled by its owner, CD and DVD distribution company MRA Entertainment.

As a result of the Collision realignment, its label manager and A&R consultant Mick de Lanty, national promotions manager Mike Thies, and New South Wales and Victorian promotions manager Andrew Howell will exit.

MRA's parent, wholesale group Home Leisure, bought CSR last November for A$11.78 million ($8.48 million). Palumbo and Williams were retained as part of the deal.

CSR is recognized as one of the leading players in the Australian dance sector. According to industry estimates, the company had a 1.2% share of the country's record market in the 2003 May-August quarter.
