For the past #@*%! years, Dutch has worked with and sold some of the most interesting and successful acts in music. Before co-founding Omnivore Recordings, he worked as VP of Sales for Nettwerk Entertainment, Rhino Entertainment and held various sales roles at WEA Distribution. Prior to that run of gigs, he held sales positions at Hollywood Records, EMI, SBK and Capitol. This guy’s got some rockin’ experience to draw upon—and that’s why he’s with Omnivore now! Like all great record folk, Dutch started out on retail record store floors, and worked his way up to purchasing for a one stop, developing a keen insight into what people actually like to buy when it comes to music. Way out in the deserts of Arizona he helped Zia Records get off the ground and worked at the legendary Ircles Records to boot.
