AUG. 23 I APPOINTMENTS I DADDY'S JUNKY MUSIC
Robert Baker Appointed President of Daddy's
Robert Baker was recently named president and COO of Daddy's Junky Music. The former president of the East Coast combo chain, Ron Papparella, has stepped back to focus on the company's financial matters.
“I am very excited with this opportunity to lead Daddy’s,” Baker said. “My 20-year career at Daddy’s has provided me great insight of not only our company but of our industry.”
Baker started his career at Daddy's flagship Boston store as a keyboard salesman in 1989 and worked his way through the ranks to assistant manager and, later, manager of that store. He went on to become district manager, vice president of sales and operations, and executive vice president of sales and marketing.
“Robert is a driven leader who has brought much to our company,” said Daddy's CEO and founder Fred Bramante. “Taking over as president when Ron was ready to step back was not only the logical thing to do, but it is in the best interest of Daddy's. Robert possesses the knowledge and leadership skills that are necessary for us to continue to move in the right direction.”
