Fearless Records has announced the appointment of Jenny Reader to president/chief creative officer and Andy Serrao to president/chief talent officer. Both were handpicked by Fearless Records founder Bob Becker.
"After starting Fearless Records 25 years ago, I am happy to be moving into the role of Charmain Emeritus of the company," said Becker in a statement. "I am very confident and happy to have appointed Jenny Reader and Andy Serrao as Fearless’ co-presidents. They have both been instrumental in the label’s ongoing success. With a stellar roster of artists, I look forward to Fearless having 2019 be the most successful year ever under their leadership."
Reader was previously the vp, marketing & production management at Fearless and has 16 years of music industry experience. She oversaw marketing campaigns for the company's rock roster including artists like Pierce The Veil, August Burns Red and I Prevail.
"It's thrilling to be able to lead the charge on a new era of Fearless, at one of the most exciting times for music and rock," added Reader. “Our roster is the strongest it has ever been, with some of our biggest releases to date coming in 2019, and I am proud to be taking the label into its next chapter with Andy and the Fearless team. We are incredibly dedicated to artist relations, development, doubling down on the lifestyle element of Fearless and the intelligent integration of our artists within our own properties. We are not afraid to push the creative boundaries on what is possible within the genre and well beyond.”
Serra previously worked as the vp of A&R at the company and has over 15 years of experience in the music industry working with both major and indie labels.
"Fearless Records has long been a place where artists have realized their creative talent and have taken their art and business to a global level,” said Serrao. “Our commitment to their vision is driven by the independent spirit and drive that Bob Becker instilled in this company from day one. I am excited to continue this commitment with the incomparable Jenny Reader and our Fearless family.”
