The veteran executive was recently promoted executive vice president at Columbia Records, leaving 25 years after Sony Music last year. Left Lepsner will be based in New York and will report to president and founder Steve Greenberg.
“Lee Lipsner is one of the smartest and most enthusiastic people in radio broadcasting, and his track record is more than just his own,” Greenberg said. “We’ve been wanting to work with Lee for a long time and now we can’t wait to let him work his magic with our records in pop.”

He worked closely with Group One Direction and its single star Harry Styles, who signed the label in June 201.
In 2017, Lepsner was named to Variety’s annual hitmakers list for his role in breaking Arthur’s “Say You Don’t Let Go.”
