CCE Marketing Taps Durrani

Clear Channel Entertainment has tapped Faisel Durrani for the post of exec VP of marketing in the music division.

Durrani was previously a senior VP of international marketing for Island Def Jam Music Group, where he developed major sponsorship deals.

While at IDJ, Durrani was also a key player in creating and implementing strategic marketing plans for artists.

“We are focused on a number of initiatives to improve the concert experience – from returning to the well-known promoter names used previously to reducing or eliminating concert facility fees,” CCE Global Music President Michael Rapino said.

“Faisel’s expertise will be invaluable and I welcome him to the team.”
