Exec has been out of the biz for past year.

New Hope, Minn.-based Navarre Entertainment Media has named Bob Frees senior VP/GM. Frees, who has been out of the music business for about the past year, has worked in the sales departments of Epic and Liberty records.

Frees essentially takes over the post vacated by Steve Pritchitt, who left in mid-August and is now GM at UMVD's Fontana Distribution.
