Scott Seine was promoted to president of Surfdog Inc./Dave Kaplan Management (DKM) this week. Seine’s new role will involve overseeing all staff, business strategy and company initiatives for both the label and the management company.

Seine began with the record label and management company as an intern and has been with Surfdog for 16 years -- over one third of its existence. Prior to his promotion, he held the role of EVP, general manager for seven years. According to a press release, Seine “presided over the most successful years in Surfdog/DKM’s 33-year history” and has overseen high-profile campaigns for artists like Glen Campbell, Eric Clapton, Sublime and more.

"Scott is one of those fairy-tale work stories, coming to Surfdog/DKM 16 years ago as the lowest-level intern and rising all the way up to become president of the company," said owner and founder Dave Kaplan in a statement. "He has it all-great music instincts, relates amazingly with artists, good soul, busts his butt, and sincerely wants to excel for the clients. He now might be a better surfer than me too (but I said might be)!"

Seine added, “I'm honored to be a part of such a great and passionate team, under Dave's invaluable mentorship. I've always had an insatiable thirst for music, so it's a privilege and dream to live that in a career and to work with our amazing artists. All while next to a cool ocean breeze!"
