FiXT Names 2 New Directors
Promotes Key Staff to Expanded Roles for 2023
FiXT, the artist-owned, independent record label from Klayton (Celldweller, Scandroid), has named Heather Johnson as Director, Label Operations, and Kurtis Redden as Director, Marketing & Sales Operations. Both directors will report to FiXT’s Vice President and Co-Founder James Rhodes.
Prior to her Director role, Heather joined FiXT in mid-2022 as a Label Manager, bringing rights management and tech industry experience from previous stints at Apple, Songtradr, Mixer, and Ninety9Lives.
“It has been an honor working with the team at FiXT as the Label Manager for these past 6 months. I’m looking forward to my new role as Director of Label Operations; expanding my responsibilities and role will allow me to better support James, our artists, and the team. We’ve had an incredible 2022 and I am excited for what we have planned in 2023.”
– Heather Johnson (Director, Label Operations)
Prior to his new role, Kurtis joined FiXT as an Executive Assistant to VP James Rhodes in 2019, with a transition to Operations Manager in 2021.
“The past 3 years working with the incredibly talented team at FiXT has been a privilege and an amazing experience. I wouldn’t have been able to grow into my new role as Director of Marketing & Sales Operations without the leadership and support from James Rhodes and the trust Klayton has put into me. In my new role I’m looking forward to working closely with the Merchandise, Press & Marketing, and Social Media teams to share more of who we are and the amazing music our roster creates with the rest of the world.”
– Kurtis Redden (Director, Marketing & Sales Operations)
“After 17+ years of running day to day operations I am incredibly proud to have reached this milestone. We have the right team and culture in place to allow me to shift my focus almost entirely to bigger picture and future development of the company while Heather, Kurtis, and our rockstar team focus on the now. Klayton and I have a big vision for where to take the company and this is a key transition to set up the next 17+ years.”

FiXT has also promoted several other key staff members with expanded roles and titles, including Chantal Holmes to Distribution Manager, Leasia Korbel to Label Publicist, Cory Todd to Senior Graphic Designer, and Alex Smolyaninov to Senior Content Coordinator.
“Heading into 2023 with the best roster and team we’ve ever had gets me more excited than ever about our ability to connect bigger picture ideas and new opportunities for the label and artists. For years James and I have strategized, dreaming big dreams and now we are positioned to execute them.”
