I look forward to continuing the growth of our digital marketing team during this exciting time for the rapidly evolving music industry.” John Fleckenstein, Co-President, RCA Records comments: “Tarek has proven himself an innovative leader in the digital space. He leads an all-star team that provides creative, dynamic and best-in-class digital campaigns for our roster.  We operate in an ever-changing digital landscape of partners and platforms.  Tarek’s deep understanding of this landscape combined with a strong passion for music sets him apart. He never forgets that it always starts with a song, an artist; and after that, it’s just about finding the perfect audience for our artists.  I couldn’t be happier to see him rise at RCA.  We’re proud to have him part of our executive team. Al-Hamdouni has worked to bolster his high-performing staff with the addition of a design and motion team dedicated to increase the quality and quantity of RCA’s content output in order to drive awareness and streaming activity.  These new additions have allowed the team to create custom streaming initiatives including the award-winning Foo Fighters mixtape generator, which delivered custom playlists to tens of thousands of fans ahead of the launch of their 2017 single, “Run.” Tarek began his career a decade ago at RCA. He graduated from Northeastern University with a BS in Music Industry in 2007.
