CONGRATS goes to my buddy and fellow Atlantan Damon Williams. RCA Inspiration has just appointed him as their new Vice President of Marketing. In this position, Williams will oversee all of the marketing and branding initiatives for the label’s award-winning roster of artists including Kirk Franklin (Fo Yo Soul), Travis Greene, Israel Houghton, Donald Lawrence, Le’Andria, Donnie McClurkin, Jason Nelson, Marvin Sapp, Tasha Page-Lockhart (Fo Yo Soul), The Walls Group (Fo Yo Soul), William Murphy, Deon Kipping, Koryn Hawthorne and more.
“I am thrilled to welcome Damon Williams to our team here at RCA Inspiration in Nashville as the new VP of Marketing. I have known Damon for many years, and in working together on numerous projects in the past I am looking forward to continued collaboration with Damon joining the rest of our team, bringing his wide-ranging experience and creative ideas to highlighting the incredible artists and new records we have coming out for 2018,” says Phil Thornton, RCA Inspiration, Senior Vice-President and General Manager.
Williams lands in Nashville following label stints with Entertainment One Music, Music World Entertainment, and Sony BMG, where his creative strategies and brand-building expertise have included multi-platform marketing campaigns, overseeing photo and video shoot projects, creative design, merchandise, special events and more.
His work in recent years included marketing for various network and film projects including HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” Oxygen’s “Preachers of LA,” “Preachers of Detroit,” and “Fix My Choir,” and the acclaimed films “12 Years A Slave” and “Black Nativity” for Fox Searchlight Pictures. I personally got a chance to work with Williams last year for the Atlanta premiere of the new theatrical stage production, “Born For This: The BeBe Winans Story.”
