Island Records has promoted Eric Wong to executive vice president / general manager at the label.
Until very recently Wong served as executive vice president of marketing at IDJ, where he created and developed strategies for Kanye West, Rihanna, Avicii and Bon Jovi, among others. He joined IDJ in 1999 and worked with a range of artists including The Killers and Fall Out Boy. He left in 2006 to juggle executive marketing positions at both Bad Boy Entertainment and Atlantic Records, where he helped guide the careers of Jay Z, Janelle Monae and others. In 2009 Wong formed Wong Management, serving as part of Mariah Carey's team, before returning to IDJ in 2011.
