RCA INSPIRATION TAPS RON HILL
9/30/19

RCA Inspiration has appointed Grammy winner and biz vet Ron Hill as VP of Artist Development. He will report to SVP and GM Phil Thornton, and Hill will oversee all A&R/Creative matters along with the newly-launched Brand Partnership division for RCA Inspiration, Essential Sound and Verity—encompassing the label's breadth of new releases from Gospel to hip-hop, nurturing its diverse roster of talent and focusing on its award-winning catalog. 

Hill joins RCAI from Fo Yo Soul Entertainment, where he was most recently President for Kirk Franklin's DFW-area company and Franklin's manager for the past six years. The young visionary began his career interning at Fo Yo Soul in 2007 and started managing Franklin in 2013, along with rising to President at the label where he worked in A&R, music production, tour management and other creative endeavors. 

Hill on his new gig, stated: “I’m honored and grateful for the opportunity to serve in this new role. Our genre is at a very pivotal moment in time and I believe now more than ever, Artist Development and A&R will help build lasting careers. I’m excited to have a hand in helping artists grow and reach a wider audience for the kingdom. I would like to thank Terry [Hemmings, Provident Music Group President/CEO] and Phil Thornton for this incredible opportunity, and Kirk Franklin for his continued support.”
