Tim Marshall, former VP of marketing at Provident-Integrity Distribution, has assumed the senior VP/GM post at Word. Rod Riley, former senior director of national account sales at Provident-Integrity Distribution, is now senior VP of marketing at Word.

These are the latest changes to take place since former Provident Label Group chairman Jim Van Hook took the helm in November, succeeding Word Entertainment president/COO Malcolm Mimms. Last week, several Word executives lost their jobs, including Word Label Group president Barry Landis and senior VP marketing and artist development Mark Lusk.
