ISLAND U.K. UPS TWO
5/31/23

Two key execs have been promoted at Island Records U.K.: Hannah Colson has taken on the newly created role of director of Artist Development while Sam Lunn is now director of Strategic Marketing.

Colson, who joined Island in 2021 and was previously head of Marketing, has recently worked on ArrDee and BRITs Rising Star winners FLO.

Lunn, previously head of Campaign Strategy, has worked on successful albums from artists including Mumford & Sons, Keane, U2, Dermot Kennedy and Ben Howard.

Island President Louis Bloom said Colson's "ability to tap into an artist’s creativity, her innate understanding of how to reach an audience, her instinct for what makes a hit record, and a rare capacity to tie every element across multiple campaigns have made her a truly exceptional member of the Island team.

“Sam is equally invaluable, always making the right choices and invariably coming up with the perfect strategy to benefit our artists. With Hannah and Sam’s vision, passion and strategic flair now fully focused within these new roles, I believe they will play a huge part in writing the next amazing chapter in the Island story.”
