Fueled By Ramen

American label Fueled By Ramen will be headed up by an exec from another Warner Music subsidiary, it has been announced.

The record company’s founder, John Janick, announced he was leaving his job running the label, and his second role as Co-President of Warner’s Elektra Records, last week, to take up the COO post at Universal Music’s Interscope. Then on Friday his right hand man, Joe Calitri, also left the Warner company.

Mike Easterlin, currently Head Of Promotions at Warner’s Roadrunner Records, will now become GM of Fueled By Ramen. He will head up the label in addition to continuing his involvement with Roadrunner; arguably a sign that both subsidiaries have been down-graded in the eyes of Warner Music management in the last year.
