Britney Davis Named General Manager at Quality Control

Quality Control has appointed Britney Davis as general manager. Davis will supervise the label’s daily operations alongside CEO Pierre “P” Thomas and COO Kevin “Coach K” Lee. In addition to serving as a liaison between Quality Control’s artist roster and affiliated teams, she will assist the staff, managers and artists in developing strategies and structure across all project campaigns. Quality Control was acquired by HYBE America in February 2023.

“Britney has a longstanding record of excellence alongside QC and throughout her professional career,” Thomas and Lee said in a joint statement. “Her passion and dedication to artists align with the principles that are the foundation of QC. We’re incredibly excited she’s part of the team and couldn’t imagine a better person to serve as our general manager.” 

Davis most recently served as senior vp of marketing & artist development as well as vp of artist relations, marketing & special projects at Motown Records/Capitol Music Group. Under the leadership of former Motown chairwoman/CEO Ethiopia Habtermariam, Davis oversaw a diverse roster of artists including those affiliated with Quality Control. Among the latter, she oversaw marketing and artist development for Lil Baby’s RIAA double platinum-certified 2020 album My Turn. In addition, she worked on marketing campaigns for Migos, City Girls, Tiwa Savage, Queen Naija and the Queen & Slim soundtrack, which featured the Grammy-nominated song “Collide.”

Added Davis in the press announcement, “I’m thrilled to be named general manager of Quality Control and to continue on this journey alongside the team. We’ve already had some incredible success together, and I look forward to continuing this pursuit. I am passionate about continuing to bring the label’s vision to life and to work alongside P, Coach K and [HYBE America/SB Projects president of management] Jen McDaniels — as their talent, loyalty and creative instincts are truly unparalleled. I’m grateful to lend my experience and drive to this incredible journey.”

Davis’ resumé includes handling management, marketing and A&R duties for the client roster at Phase Too Inc. She previously worked in day-to-day management for Grammy Award winner Chris Brown, collaborating alongside him and Phase Too founder Tina Davis to develop Brown’s CBE Records and overseeing songwriting and artist development for Sevyn Streeter, Kevin McCall, Joelle James and more. 

A graduate of Howard University with a BA in communications, Davis has been a Billboard Women in Music, R&B/Hip-Hop Power Players and 40 Under 40 honoree. She was also saluted by ASCAP’s Women Behind the Music in 2019.
