Chairman Mike Curb had this to say on Hannon’s promotion: “I am extremely proud and appreciative of all that Dennis has accomplished for this company over the last quarter century.  There is no question our company would not be where it is today, if not for his abilities and tireless dedication.  I couldn’t think of a more perfect person to tackle the strategic development of Curb Records and help grow our business in new and exciting ways.”

In addition, Taylor Childress -- VP of Curb Records and Sidewalk Records -- becomes VP of the Curb Group, working alongside Norman.

We have an incredible team of hard-working, dedicated and talented artists and employees at Curb.  I look forward with great enthusiasm, to the new opportunities ahead.”
