Downtown has appointed Ben Patterson as President of the company’s Artist & Label Services division. In his new role, Patterson will continue to scale the company’s services to new genres and markets while providing support for marquee artists and labels. With more than 20 years of experience working with artists, Paterson joined Downtown’s COO since 2019 when the company acquired DashGo, the distribution company he founded in 2004. As COO, he grew the company’s business revenues by 250% year-over-year, as well as expanded its worldwide distribution business in South America and the UK.
“With Ben’s move, we have completed a series of changes that we commenced two years ago, firmly establishing Downtown as the premier provider of distribution, publishing, artist, label and related services to the broader industry,” said Downtown Music Holdings CEO, Andrew Bergman, “We’re extremely fortunate to have Ben and the rest of the leadership team that guides this division and I am excited to see how they continue to grow and evolve.”
