Brian Malouf has left RCA Records, where he was senior VP of A&R, Billboard.biz has learned. Malouf was the last remaining senior A&R executive from the Bob Jamieson era, which ended when Clive Davis took over as RCA Music Group chairman in November 2002.
An RCA spokesman declined comment.
The RCA A&R team now consists of senior VPs Steve Ferrera and Steve Ralbovsky, VP Matt Marshall and A&R manager Donna Pearce, all reporting to executive A&R VP Ashley Newton, who joined in January 2003 from Virgin.
Malouf joined RCA in 1994 as a staff producer. He added A&R duties the following year and was upped to senior VP of A&R in 1998. During his tenure at the label, he worked with Eve 6, Lit, the Verve Pipe and Stellastarr, among others.
