By | Published on Friday 31 January 2014


Independent music publisher Imagem has announced the appointment of Jason Jordan, the former Columbia and Hollywood Records A&R chief who also co-founded the SynchTank platform, to the role of President at Imagem Music US, the firm’s “pop division” in America.

Confirming the hire, Imagem Group CEO AndrĂ© de Raaff told CMU: “We are very happy how our Imagem Music pop business has developed during the last few years in the US, with signings such as Mark Ronson, John Shanks and seminal catalogues like Elvis Presley and Sammy Cahn, and of course the success of Daft Punk in 2013; however we want our US company to focus even more on the A&R activities of our current and new roster. This has led our long search for finding the right candidate to Jason, whom I’m convinced will do an excellent job”.

Jordan, meanwhile, added: “AndrĂ© and his team at Imagem have built a dynamic multi-national company with a fabulous catalogue of songs and roster of writers. It is with great pleasure that I join them in growing and nurturing Imagem Music’s creative vision and brand”.
