Capitol Music Group has hired industry veterans Jennie Boddy and Erin Cooney as vice presidents of publicity under Ambrosia Healy, the company's head of media strategy and relations. Expect a seamless move for the new hires, who already work with Healy at her indie PR firm The Fun Star, whose client list includes Coldplay, Bastille and Nine Inch Nails.

At CMG, Boddy and Cooney will be tasked with designing and executing publicity plans for artists across the company's genre-spanning portfolio of labels, including Capitol, Virgin, Motown, Harvest, Blue Note and Astralwerks. Boddy will be based in NYC, while Cooney will work in Hollywood.

Boddy joined that company in January, 2014, opening and heading its East Coast operations out of New York. Boddy's music career began in 1988 as the first publicist for legendary Seattle label, Sub Pop, working with Nirvana, Mudhoney and other grunge heavies, before moving to Interscope in 1994, going on to work with Marilyn Manson, M.I.A., The Hives and more.

Cooney began her music career in the Capitol publicity department in 2001, before joining The Fun Star 10 years ago.

"Reunited and it feels so good," said Healy in a press announcement. "I am thrilled to welcome Jennie and Erin into the Capitol Music Group family at such an exciting time for the company. CMG and its artists will immediately feel the positive difference that these two will make to our team."
