Progression is a beautiful thing…whether you think this was a good decision or not, Joie Manda has reportedly left the Jef Jam Presidency for his new position as President of Urban Music at Interscope Records. He did release a statement on the move as well:

“Despite having to move back to Los Angeles for personal reasons, I am truly grateful to Barry, John and Jimmy Iovine (Chairman & CEO, Interscope Geffen A&M) for this exciting new opportunity. I’ve learned a lot from Barry in the last year and am very appreciative of everything he has done for me. I am now looking forward to being part of the Interscope family, a company uniquely positioned for success despite this challenging marketplace.”
