Scott Seine is now president of Surfdog Inc./Dave Kaplan Management, after serving the last seven years as the company’s executive VP/general manager of both the label and management company.

During that period Surfdog/DKM enjoyed some of its most successful years including top-charting releases and campaigns for artists including Glen Campbell, Eric Clapton, Brian Setzer, Dave Stewart, Joss Stone, Sublime and more, according to a statement.

In his new role Seine will oversee all staff, business strategy and company initiatives for the label and management company based in Encinitas, Calif.

“Scott is one of those fairy-tale work stories, coming to Surfdog/DKM 16 years ago as the lowest-level intern and rising all the way up to become president of the company,” Dave Kaplan said. “He has it all – great music instincts, relates amazingly with artists, good soul, busts his butt, and sincerely wants to excel for the clients. He now might be a better surfer than me, too (but I said might be)! 

I’m honored to be a part of such a great and passionate team, under Dave’s invaluable mentorship,” says Seine. “I’ve always had an insatiable thirst for music, so it’s a privilege and dream to live that in a career and to work with our amazing artists.  All while next to a cool ocean breeze!”
