Elektra Records has named veteran A&R executive Gregg Nadel to the newly created position of general manager. Based in NYC, Nadel was most recently svp of A&R and marketing at Elektra's parent, Atlantic Records, where he's worked for 18 years.
Nadel reports to Elektra president Jeff Castelaz, who calls him an "agile, tenacious exec who can feel a hit a mile away -- which makes him the natural choice to stand beside me as the new Elektra gains momentum." At Atlantic, Nadel signed Zac Brown Band, O.A.R. and Sturgill Simpson, and he's worked on campaigns for Ed Sheeran and Coldplay. He also heads his own Atlantic imprint, F-Stop, whose roster includes Vance Joy and others.
