The Music Business Association (Music Biz) will host the first-ever “#NEXTGEN_NOW: Young Voices Rewriting the Rules” panel on Tuesday, May 15 at 9 a.m. CT during the Music Biz 2018 conference at the Omni Nashville Hotel.
The event will shine a light on the stories of a group of music executives — all under 30 years old — who are making waves in the industry and have come to represent the next generation’s already growing influence. They include moderator Cherie Hu, Contributing Writer/Editor at Billboard/Forbes, and panelists Jackie Augustus, Head of Digital Marketing at Scooter Braun’s SB Projects; Amber Grimes, Manager of Artist and Label Marketing at Spotify; Phil Quist, an Agent at the Creative Artists Agency (CAA); and Anna Weisband, Vice President at THiS Music/Warner Chappell.
“As the music industry continues to grow, it is important to foster the next generation of young executives who will carry the industry forward by spotlighting the unconventional paths to success that they and their peers have blazed,” said James Donio, President of Music Biz. “The speakers on our first ‘#NEXTGEN_NOW’ panel have all proven that passion and can kick open any door. We are thrilled to have them share their stories, from turning a Justin Bieber Twitter fan account into a high-powered position at a top management company; to personally tracking down Troy Carter for a key job at Spotify; to giving up a lucrative career as an investment banker to become a music agent; to being named a music industry VP at age 23.”
