BMG Chrysalis ups Granat

GRANAT IS A ROCK AT BMG CHRYSALIS: Jon Granat has been upped to VP Marketing, Film & Television, at BMG Chrysalis, as the pubbery further solidifies its West Coast team. The announcement was made by SVP Marketing Wendy Griffiths, to whom Granat will report. In his new role, Granat will oversee the placement and marketing of BMG writers for all TV media, as well as continuing to function as a direct liaison with artists and writers. “Jon's extensive knowledge of the catalog, along with his tremendous relationships with our writers, made this an obvious decision for me,” Griffiths stated. “I knew within a matter of weeks, that he would be an invaluable asset to the new BMG Marketing staff.” Said Granat: “At the end of the day, it’s all about the songs—those moments when I really get to connect with our writers, learn the inside story on a song, then find it a great placement. That’s why I do it.” Granat joined the film & TV department of what was then Chrysalis Music USA in 2007. Prior to that, he held posts at Warner Bros. Television, Barton Music and Warner/Chappell. Granat is a graduate of the University of Florida, but he’s never been seen Tebowing. (2/28a)
