Mark Chipello

VP, Head of A&R,
Position Music
Mark joined Position Music in 2011 where he has continued to sign, develop and manage a cadre of artists including Welshly Arms, Tyrone Wells, Judah & the Lion, Michael Franti, and Ben Rector (amongst others). Mark also oversees and guides Position Music’s A&R staff and continues to garner both record and publishing deals for Position Music talent.
Before wearing his A&R hat, Mark spent eight years on the road as a drummer and a tour manager, traveling throughout the U.S. and learning his craft. Mark will tell you that he has never used his college degree, but we do notice that he is riveting at cocktail parties because of his abundant Religious Studies and Philosophy knowledge from UCLA. He’s also deeply passionate about red wine and cooking.
When asked what he brings to Position Music, Mark explains that it is his passion, intensity and desire to have writers win. Nothing gives him more joy than to see a writer/producer make a good living by doing something they love. Mark also enjoys digging into data, trends, and information to best equip creators with valuable knowledge and insight. A natural team-leader, Mark enjoys being part of a company that truly cares about people and doing the right thing.
