Mike Easterlin, president of Fueled By Ramen and Roadrunner, said: “Chris, Suzi, and Katie have been key players in the outstanding success and continued growth of both FBR and Roadrunner over the past five years. As a small, dedicated team driven by an independent spirit, it’s our mission to give each of our artists our undivided attention, and Chris, Suzi, and Katie do that with an unbridled passion for the music, a fierce devotion to our roster, and wide-ranging expertise. We’re a close-knit family of music fans, and it’s my great pleasure to recognise three of our own with these much-deserved promotions.”
