After only a year at his post as Def Jam President, Joie Manda has resigned to become the new President of Urban Music at Interscope Records.

Manda released the following statement regarding his resignation:

“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.”

Chalk up another W for Beats Audio.
