It’s official: Doja Cat’s manager, Gordan Dillard, has been named executive vice president of A&R and artist development for Capitol Music Group.

Dillard will sign and develop artists for the company and oversee recording projects for new and established acts spanning CMG’s portfolio of labels. He will work closely with his new boss, CMG Chair & CEO Michelle Jubelirer, as a key member of her senior executive team to set the creative direction of the company. Dillard is based at The Tower, but he will also maintain a presence in New York.

“Gordan is an artist-first executive with impeccable taste, and I’m thrilled that he’s joined Capitol Music Group in such an important role,” Jubelirer said. “He’s a real team player and an ideal fit for my senior management team, and I know everyone at our company joins me in welcoming Gordan to CMG.”

Dillard will continue to manage Doja Cat at Wassim “SAL” Slaiby’s SALXCO, where he has worked since 2018.

Dillard began his career at Motown Records in 2009 in the A&R department, where he spent two years under Bruce Carbone and Sylvia Rhone. He then joined BET, simultaneously heading his own management company, The Untitled Group.
