Dvora Vener Englefield joins 42West

Will head new music department

Music publicist Dvora Vener Englefield is joining publicity firm 42West to head its newly created music department, based in Los Angeles.

Lisa Taylor, who has worked with Englefield in the past, will be part of the team.
Englefield had been a senior vp at B|W|R, where she created and ran the music department and repped such artists as Christina Aguilera, Evanescence, Linkin Park, Maroon 5, Neil Diamond, Ziggy Marley, Alanis Morissette, Motley Crue and Prince.

“Although we have long represented a wide variety of recording artists, we’ve always wanted to have a department devoted solely to music,” Leslee Dart, founder of 42West and the partner in charge of its talent division, said. “What made it possible for us to finally take this step was finding an executive of Dvora’s caliber to lead this initiative.”
