Andre Harrell is named to new position of Vice Chairman of REVOLT TV

(July 11, 2014) REVOLT TV CEO Keith Clinkscales announced the appointment of music veteran Andre Harrell to a new role of vice chairman. In his new position, Harrell will use his extensive music industry knowledge to lead the inaugural REVOLT Music Conference taking place this October in Miami. Through the music conference, Harrell will also create new opportunities for REVOLT with technology companies, brands, and the music industry largely focusing on business development, outreach and strategic partnerships.

"We are also proud to announce that music industry pioneer Andre Harrell has been named vice chairman of REVOLT TV, with the first order of leading development and outreach for the conference," Clinkscales stated, "The REVOLT Music Conference presents an opportunity for industry professionals to have credible, informed conversations that can impact the future of the industry, including brands and technology leaders as catalysts."

Harrell has a long and illustrious career in the entertainment industry. Over four decades he has built an enviable track record in film, television, music, and branding. He founded Uptown Records, and held executive position at Rush Communications, Motown Records and Atlantic Records.

Harrell founded and operated the advertising agency Nu America, working on campaigns for Tommy Jeans, Footaction USA, and Apollo Theater Foundation. As vice chairman of Combs Enterprises, Harrell has advised on marketing efforts for Sean John, Ciroc and REVOLT. He has also worked with Bono to introduce the (RED) campaign for HIV/AIDs awareness among the urban market.

"I'm thrilled to help REVOLT increase its influence as the only revolutionary music network tapped into what fans and artists truly want," said REVOLT's new Vice Chairman Andre Harrell. "I look forward to using my expertise, industry experience and relationships to help grow REVOLT's brand presence in the months and years to come through the music conference and beyond."

REVOLT attracts over 50 million young adults through television, digital properties, social and mobile, REVOLT is accessible 24/7 anytime, anywhere, any screen. Launched in broadcast in October 2013, REVOLT is available on Time Warner Cable, Comcast and Century Link in over 40 of the top 50 U.S. markets including New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Boston, Atlanta, and DC.
