Cohen Named VP/Marketing At Nonesuch

Dan Cohen has joined Nonesuch Records as VP of Marketing. Cohen joins the Warner Music Group label from Republic Records, where he served in a similar position for the past two years. Cohen is now based at the label’s global headquarters in New York and reports to Nonesuch President David Bither, who said, “I’m very happy to welcome Dan to Nonesuch. One of the remarkable things about our label has been the stability of its core management team. The opportunity to introduce a new voice to that group — particularly someone with the reputation of Dan Cohen — was a special one and I look forward to Nonesuch benefiting from the rich experience he brings us. I’m delighted that he is joining us and believe it speaks to our ambition to build on the course that Nonesuch has charted, today and in the years to come.”

Cohen began his music business career in 1994 as a publicist, handling PR for the Real World label before transitioning over to Astralwerks Records to run its publicity department. Cohen later held senior marketing positions at Caroline Distribution, Capitol Records, V2 Records, PALM Pictures and Girlie Action, where he launched the firm’s marketing division.

Commenting on his new opportunity, Cohen added, “It’s truly an honor to join the Nonesuch family. Nonesuch is a label that has been so formative to my musical growth since I was in high school. I can recall countless moments in my life that various albums from the label have served as the soundtrack. I’m thrilled to be working with David, Bob Hurwitz, Peter Clancy, Kris Chen and the whole incredible Nonesuch team in helping to build on the legacy of this amazing label.”
