EMI CMG Distribution president Rich Peluso is exiting his post to become president of The Safe Side, a company launched last May to create child safety products for elementary school children. He will assume his new position on Nov. 2.

The company was started by Julie Clark, founder of The Baby Einstein Company, and John Walsh, host of "America's Most Wanted." The Safe Side's first video, "Stranger Safety," was released in May.

A 15-year veteran of the Christian music industry, Peluso will remain in Franklin, Tenn. where he'll open the company's new office. He'll focus on marketing, sales, customer service, licensing and business development. EMI CMG will distribute The Safe Side products.

As Peluso prepares to depart, Greg Bays is being promoted to senior VP of sales and marketing for EMI CMG Distribution. Bays joined EMI CMG's telesales team in 1992 and rose through the ranks to become VP of sales for Sparrow Label Group for four years before assuming his most recent role of VP of sales for EMI CMG Distribution.
