P. Diddy announced that his former assistant Harve Pierre who had been with him since the very start, is made the new president of his record label.
P. Diddy has appointed a new president for his label, Bad Boy Records. Harve Pierre, a former intern of the rapper who had joined Bad Boy since its establishment in 1993, has been promoted to the top position on Tuesday, January 29.
Pierre started off as Diddy's assistant and the executive producer of 50 Bad Boy albums plus five other projects with RCA Records, according to Variety.com. He has since worked his way up to become the executive VP/General Manager/VP of A&R.
"Harve's promotion to president is well-deserved," Diddy said of the new president. "He has been with Bad Boy since the beginning and has worked hard to learn all aspects of the business... I look forward to Harve's continued success."
Among the responsibilities that Pierre will take are finance, creative, promotional, marketing, A&R, international and sales divisions at the label. He will also take charge on developing new artists for Bad Boy, as part of a joint venture with Warner Music Group.
