The sales department of the newly formed Capitol Music Group will be handled by the former Virgin Records sales staff, headed up by Dominec Pandisca, sources say.

Today (Feb. 9) is the last day for the Capitol Records sales staff, headed up by senior VP of sales Joe McFadden and VP of field sales Joy Feuer.

The move follows a number of lay offs in promotion, publicity and A&R, at the label group Wednesday (Feb. 6).
