Theresa Adebiyi has joined music and technology platform Venice as director, audience and culture.
Venice is part of Troy Carter and Suzy Ryoo’s Q&A business and has been set up to offer distribution services alongside support with roster management, track splits, marketing, creative, A&R, digital and streaming.
Former Partisan creative director Adebiyi will work alongside Matt Ott, who heads up Q&A’s UK business and is VP, artist development and strategy.
Adebiyi, who was previously at Ninja Tune, left Partisan last year, having worked on high profile campaigns for Fontaines DC, Idles and more. The label won at the Music Week Awards last year.
Theresa Adebiyi said: “Joining Q&A + Venice at this time for me represents an incredible and exciting opportunity to really dig into my experience as a marketeer, creative director and label manager. Seeing what Troy, Suzy and the extremely talented team are building both for artists, labels, partners and their own brand is inspiring on a personal and professional level. I’m excited to begin to help shape and build the culture of Venice and ensure we relentlessly strive to best serve our artists and their audiences within this innovative company.”
