We want to send a major congratulations to Philadelphia’s own Marc Byers, who was just named the new General Manger of Motown Records.

According to, Byers will oversee the Capitol Music Group imprint’s day-to-day operations and work closely with Motown president Ethiopia Habtemariam, to whom he’ll report, on business strategy and development out of the iconic Capitol Tower in Hollywood.

“We are excited to have Marc Byers join the Motown team! His level of experience, impact, and proven results in our business is undeniable,” Habtemariam said. “Marc is extremely passionate and dedicated and I couldn’t be happier that he’ll oversee our day-to-day operations!”

He and his brother Sherman Byers started a music and marketing management firm, and has worked with the talents such as Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Usher, Eve, Chris Brown, Jamie Foxx, Raven-Symone, and producers, Dre and Vidal and Rodney Jerkins.
