Universal Music UK has announced some promotions at its Polydor Records label. And these are all occurring with immediate effect no less. So you all need to update your rolodexes immediately.

And also get a rolodex. And also buy a time machine to go back to whatever year it was when people still used rolodexes. And, if you’re under the age of 45, probably Google ‘rolodex’ to see what fuck I’m talking about. Done that? Good.

Right, where were we? Oh yes, Stephen Hallowes and Jodie Cammidge – previously Director Of Marketing and Promotions Director at Polydor Records respectively – are now co-Managing Directors of the label. And Semera Khan is now Senior Director Of Creative and Luke Ferrar is Senior Innovation Director.

Confirming all this, Polydor President Ben Mortimer says: “These promotions reflect Polydor’s vision of what a modern record company should be, with music, creativity and innovation at the heart of the label. Stephen exemplifies a modern executive, as kind and thoughtful as he is driven and intelligent. Jodie is well loved by artists, managers and the wider industry with deep relationships not just in promotions but across the industry both here and abroad”.

“Together they complement each other brilliantly”, he goes on, “and alongside Semera and Luke – who as anybody will tell you are stars – they have played massive roles in Polydor’s huge success over the last few years. It feels great to be able to recognise that”.

Do you know what would be even greater? If we all got ourselves a nice new rolodex to document these promotions. And look, they still sell them! For some reason. And a bargain at just £31.54!
