Could someone help me with the abbreviation "A. and R. executive" ? I think it has something to do with music, but I'm not sure...

    ...Originally formed in 1999, Acceptance caught the ear of Columbia A and R executive (and former host of MTV's groundbreaking 120 Minutes) Matt Pinfield with a five-song demo,...

    A&R means "Artist and Repertoire"
    I think they're some kind of talent scouts, des "chasseurs de talents" maybe?

    From a LA Times article :
    In the music industry, talent scouts work in a department called Artist & Repertoire (A&R). They scout and sign singers and musicians as well as manage the recording process.
