January 20, 2013


Bryan Mead, Senior Vice President of INresidence, the artist services division of INgrooves Fontana which was launched last fall, announced the appointment of industry veteran Tim Reid to the position of Vice President of Product Management, Urban at the company.

"Tim is without a doubt one of the most creative and respected marketing executives in the business and I expect his contribution to our roster will be substantial," said Mr. Mead in making the announcement.

Mr. Reid comes to INgrooves Fontana from his own marketing company, Pro Franchise Group, which he launched in 2009, working with such successful artists as Jill Scott and Common. In addition, he was also co-Music Supervisor for TV One's NAACP Award nominated series "Verses & Flow." Prior to that he spent a decade as Vice President of Marketing at Interscope/Geffen/A&M, working with Snoop Dogg, Common, The Roots, Mos Def, Avant, and Akon's Konlive imprint, to name a few. He played an important role in the success of the groundbreaking independent hip hop label Priority Records which he joined in 1995. As Director of Marketing at Priority he worked with Ice Cube, Westside Connection, Master P and his No Limit label and with JAY-Z on his debut album Reasonable Doubt.

"With its exceptional distribution and digital platforms serving the creative community, INgrooves Fontana is an incredibly exciting opportunity," said Mr. Reid. "I'm looking forward to being an integral part of career building and brand development at INgrooves Fontana to further strengthen our position in the Urban marketplace."

Mr. Reid will be based in INgrooves Fontana's Los Angeles offices.
