BBR Music Group has promoted JoJamie Hahr to senior vice president.
According to a release, Hahr — formerly the company’s vice president of marketing — will help guide all non-finance and legal operations for the label. She will supervise and coordinate day-to-day operations of the label group and its imprints (Broken Bow Records, Stoney Creek Records and Wheelhouse Records) while still reporting to Jon Loba, Nashville president of BMG (which owns BBR).
Hahr began her career in radio with WWKA in Orlando before moving to Nashville to work in promotion at WSIX and, later, working at MCA Records.
Loba would eventually hire Hahr as Southeast director of radio promotion for BBR Music Group, leading to the breaking of acts such as Jason Aldean. When Loba moved to Big Machine to help Scott Borchetta start The Valory Music Company, Hahr soon followed. A few years after Loba’s return to BBR Music Group, Hahr returned as well to serve VP of radio promotion before transitioning to VP of marketing.
“This appointment essentially formalizes the evolution of her role since BMG’s acquisition of the BBR Music Group,” Loba said in the release. “As my responsibilities have increased, JoJamie has stepped in and stepped up at every turn, to help grow our Nashville division. She is truly a right hand who thinks and moves like me, while at the same time challenging us all.”
Founded in 1997, BBR Music Group was acquired by BMG in 2017. BMG bills itself as the world’s fourth-largest music publisher.
