LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) – Jackie Winkler has been promoted to Vice President, A&R, at Island Records. Winkler will be based in Los Angeles and report directly to Imran Majid and Justin Eshak, Co-CEOs.

Winkler began her career as an intern at Warner Records. She was hired as an A&R manager in 2011, with her first signing being Grammy-winning artist Andra Day. She joined Island in 2015 as A&R Director. Winkler played a significant role in the signing of Lauren Spencer-Smith and works closely with Demi Lovato and Sabrina Carpenter, plus more.

Per a press release, Winkler said: “It’s a privilege to have spent most of my career at a label as legendary as Island Records. I have been incredibly fortunate to grow with such extraordinary artists and feel immense gratitude for that. It is a true honor to work alongside some of the best leaders in the industry, and I thank Imran and Justin for giving me the opportunity and freedom to continue making noise and cultivating new talent in this elevated position.”
