LONDON, UK (CelebrityAccess) – Annie Christensen has been promoted to A&R director at Island Records, UK.
Christensen, who began her career with Island back in 2003 has steadily been making her way through the company’s ranks ever since.
Together with head of A&R Louis Bloom, Christensen has secured deals with Mumford & Sons, Spring King, Ben Howard, and Hozier among others.
