John Janick to Succeed Jimmy Iovine as Chairman, CEO of Interscope Geffen A&M

Meet Jimmy Iovine’s successor:

A month ago, one UMG executive told Billboard, “Jimmy has kind of handed the label over to him and appears ready to do something else. Janick is absolutely running the label 100%.” The same source added that Jimmy was proud to have done “something that none of his peers had done: find a successor.”

In a statement, Iovine noted, “John Janick has exactly what it takes to lead Interscope Geffen A&M: he started his own label, he understands the art of making records and the unique dynamic between a record label and artist, as well as the enormous responsibility that comes with representing one of the greatest artist rosters ever assembled.”
