FUGA appoints Sarah Landy as SVP Americas04 August 2022 - Press release
Downtown Music-owned FUGA, the world’s leading full-service B2B distributor, announces the appointment of Sarah Landy as its SVP Americas. Effective immediately, Landy will join FUGA’s expanding LA office and oversee all business development and client relations for North and South America.
Formerly the Vice President of Lowly, the independent record label formed alongside The Nations network, Landy led the business day to day, overseeing operations, marketing, creative, A&R and sync, and brings 20 years of experience within the industry to her new role at FUGA.
As the Senior Director of Marketing for Sony’s RED Music division, Landy worked on high profile campaigns for artists/labels and brands, including Mumford & Sons/Glassnote, Gatorade and Cirque du Soleil before joining AWAL as General Manager, North America, the company’s first US hire in 2014.
Later promoted to Senior Vice President of Client Development with AWAL, the role encompassed leadership across distribution and services for hundreds of clients in the territory and client acquisition. Signings included GRAMMY nominated releases with Steve Lacy and De La Soul, AWKAFINA's Libera Award-winning album, and NFT pioneer 3LAU's debut album.
Reporting to FUGA CCO, David Driessen, Landy will oversee the distributor’s growing roster of clients in the region, including Epitaph, Dim Mak, Better Noise Music and Sua Música. She will be based in FUGA’s West Coast office - which has doubled in size since the start of 2022 - following the addition of Senior Marketing Services Director, Ryan Stockwell who was announced last month as part of a raft of senior hires and promotions.
Sarah Landy says: “I am delighted to be joining the wonderful team at FUGA, a company I've long admired. I am incredibly excited to be in the fabric of FUGA's excellent labels and partners, and to continue building with the team in the Americas and globally.”
David Driessen, CCO of FUGA says: “We’re privileged to have Sarah Landy join FUGA at such a pivotal time of growth. Her expertise, leadership and unparalleled knowledge of the independent landscape will be of great value as we continue to expand our offerings within North, Central and South America.”
