As Mix’s February 2015 issue was going to press, longtime studio executive Rose Mann-Cherney announced that she has stepped down as president of Record Plant Recording Studios. Mann-Cherney will retain an equity stake in the company moving forward.
“We thank Rose for her years of service to Record Plant,” says Record Plant CEO Rick Stevens. “She has been a tremendous asset to our organization and the industry at large. We wish her the best of luck.”
Record Plant Vice President/General Manager Jason Carson had already taken on many of Mann-Cherney’s longtime duties in recent months, and will take the reins in a fuller capacity. “Jason has been with us for over 12 years, and I’ve been preparing him for the last five years to take over for me. He has my utmost confidence and support,” states Mann-Cherney.
Jeff Barnes also retains his role as studio manager, helping with a smooth transition.
“It has been a fabulous run for me at Record Plant, over most of the past 35 years,” says Mann-Cherney. “I have made countless friends here: artists, musicians, producers, engineers, management, and those in related industries. The Record Plant has been an iconic, world-class studio for over three decades and will continue to be the studio of choice for leading artists, engineers and producers. I will never forget my experience here, but the time is right, and I look forward to what my next chapters hold.”
