NEW YORK, LOS ANGELES, and LONDON, Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- RTG Ventures, Inc. (OTCQB: RTGV), today updated the last communication of the name change to Digital Brand Media & Marketing Group, Inc. (OTCQB: DBMM) and the change in focus and leadership at the company of Steven Baughman, Head, US Operations and Reggie James, Senior Vice-President of Marketing and Communications and Executive Director, to Co-Chief Operating Officers.

After regrouping behind the scenes, it is important to communicate a brief outline on some of the changes being worked on at the company where commercial sensitivity allows.

Asked about the focus of the new group, Head of US Operations and Co-Chief Operating Officer, Steve Baughman said, "The new group is about combining the best of talent to address a need in the market, namely the music and entertainment industry. The new name signifies and far more clearly explains what we do."

He added, "The music and entertainment sectors operate in unique environments, different to many traditional businesses. Many of the more classical routes to market in this arena have become blurred. The need for an end-to-end solution that encompasses all aspect of social, design and digital marketing augmented to established channels is crucial.  With my reach and experience, coupled with the team at Digital Clarity's marketing prowess and experience, there is a huge opportunity for growth and new business."

Senior Vice-President of Marketing & Communications & Co-Chief Operating Officer Reggie James added, "2012 saw an unprecedented growth in acquisitions of specialist digital shops for many times their value by large, diverse advertising and marketing groups like Dentsu, WPP, Interpublic and Havas. As the digital market matures, this growth had been driven by the need for specialists who understand the seismic shift developing in both established and emerging markets for experienced digital practitioners."

James added, "By creating a niche that fills a need, strongly positions the new groups' focus at the heart of the growth in these sectors as well as other target areas such as fashion and sports."

Steve Baughman will be attending the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) conference in Anaheim, California to open up new relationships and outline new business opportunities under the new thrust of the company.
