Most record companies are large parent companies that have a bunch of record labels affiliated with them. Each individual record label has a president, with a vice president in charge of a different department, such as:
- The A&R (artists & repertoire) department, which finds new talent
- The art department, which designs the CD cover, advertising and store display
- Business affairs, which includes payroll and bookkeeping
- Label liaison, the conduit between the parent company and the record label
- The legal department, which deals with contracts and lawsuits
- The marketing department, which coordinates the promotion, publicity and sales departments
- New media, which handles the artist's Internet presence
- The promotion department, which ensures the artist's songs are played on the radio
- The publicity department, which tries to get articles written about the artist and works to have the artist appear on television and radio
- The sales department, which handles the distribution of albums to stores
