Remember how not long ago Roadrunner Records let go of some employees and closed down offices? Well…Rose Slanic was one of these people who was let go as the Canadian office. A few months later it seems Rose will be back in action as she will run Eleven Seven Music Canada who have just extended their deal with Universal Music Canada. The deal was announced by Allen Kovac, Founder and CEO of Eleven Seven Music and Randy Lennox, President and CEO, UMC.
Commented Kovac: “Eleven Seven Music has enjoyed a wonderful partnership with Randy and his team at Universal Music Canada and we are delighted to have someone like Rose who is equally compelling and will combine our strengths. Rose’s background working in all areas of an independent label while fully understanding the strength of Universal will serve our artists well.”
Added Lennox: “Eleven Seven is one of hard rock’s foremost labels; home to incredible artists run by Allen Kovac, a man with great vision and leadership, and we are delighted to extend our deal with Allen and his team. We are thrilled to welcome Rose Slanic back into our fold as Rose’s knowledge of the genre is second to none in this country.”
“I am looking forward to working with Allen Kovac and his team at Eleven Seven and Five Seven Records. Having been in this industry for 18 years, I have worked with some of the bands in the past including Buckcherry and Papa Roach, so it will be amazing to work with people I have developed friendships with over the years. The best part is that I get to come back into the Universal Music Canada family where I feel I really never left. Randy has been a big supporter of mine and someone I truly admire. I get to be with Universal in Canada while further expanding the Eleven Seven brand in Canada.”
Rose Slanic starts on Wednesday, August 15 and will work out of UMC’s Toronto head office.
