It is an exciting time over at Bethel Music as they announce multiple promotions and new hires designed to elevate the already internationally renowned label. Over the last few months, they have worked with their diverse talent to create a leadership team reflective of the future of Bethel Music. In a move that naturally presented itself, Jenn Johnson has been named President and Interim CEO of Bethel Music. She assumes the position after co-founding the label in 2001 with her husband Brian. 

“I’m so fired up about the future of Bethel Music,” shares Jenn. “We have such an incredible group of people joining us on this journey and pushing us to the next level. The new music that we are creating and the community surrounding it is the strongest it’s been. This new era of Bethel Music has been so beautiful, and I am so excited to see what’s in store.”

In the Redding office, Katie Langenberg has spent the last few years as CFO after beginning at Bethel Music 11 years ago as a bookkeeper. Blake Citro has been with the company for 4 years and is the new Head of Events. New Head of Operations Vanessa Nulick has been with Bethel Music for 2 years and began as an Executive Assistant. After 7 years with Bethel Music, Balt Pazos is the new Head of Business Strategy. Finally, Eric Allen is now the Director of Creative Publishing after being with the label for 7 years.

In the Nashville office, Erica Boutwell has been named Head of Communications after beginning with Bethel Music as an Executive Assistant 3 years ago. Christian Ostrom returned to the label two years ago as the Creative Director and has now been with Bethel for 5 out of the last 7 years. A more recent hire, Adrian Thompson is the new Head of A&R having joined the label 9 months ago. Another new hire, Morgan Shirey joined Bethel Music 5 months ago as Marketing Director. To round out the Nashville office, Matt Lopez will be relocating this summer after 4 years based in Redding as the Director of Pub Admin & Digital Rights.
