Six-year old Edition Records, with around 50 releases and many awards and plaudits to its name, has just announced that "it has secured significant external investment" and announced that it is "now able to implement much larger, expansive strategies to better serve its artists and engage with wider audiences throughout the world," according to co-founder Dave Stapleton.
- Tim Dickeson is going to "step back from the daily management of the business..and continue.. as a non-executive director." He, Mary and Olivia have manned Edition stalls at countless jazz festivals.
- Mike Gavin's role in publicity is formalized. Sean Bradley will run sales, Talea Bartlett will deal with the German market and Martin Hummel is to be non-executive chairman.
