Sylvia-rhone-black-music-month2Congratulations to Sylvia Rhone!

The longtime music exec has officially been named the president of Epic Records.

Rhone headed Elektra Entertainment Group, then Universal Motown for nearly two decades.


Her new appointment comes just a year after she launched Vested in Culture (VIC), her joint venture with Epic. VIC will remain an imprint of the label.

Rhone served as president of Universal Motown Records before joining Epic in 2013.

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to expand my relationship with the talented team and amazing artists at Epic,” Rhone said in a statement. “What makes this opportunity different from any other is my partnership with renowned music executive L.A. Reid. I’m looking forward to what I think will be the finest chapter in my career.”
