Roadrunner’s Frey named VP

Roadrunner Records‘ Harlan Frey, the former senior director of touring and artist development, is now VP of Tour Marketing / Artist Development.

The bump comes at a good time for Frey, who plans to attend the Pollstar Concert Industry Awards February 15th at Las Vegas, where he will be vying for the Artist Development Executive Of The Year award.

It is Frey’s third nomination in that category in four years.

The Roadrunner exec has been credited with the development of Nickelback, Slipknot and others on the roster, along with developing act The Dresden Dolls.
