Gershon Joins Epic

Andy Gershon has joined Epic Records as executive vice president.

He will be based in New York and will play a central role in expanding and diversifying the label’s roster.

Gershon began his career managing bands like The Smashing Pumpkins, Love & Rockets, and The Cocteau Twins.

His most recent position was president of V2 Records – home of The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, Josh Ritter, and Moby – which was restructured to a catalog label in January, so Gershon and staff went elsewhere.
