The magic of this series lies in the match-making we do when pairing the speakers. Well, this one was really easy as these two rockstar executives have worked closely together inside UMG as well as outside independent consultants.
Jon Vanhala and Bill Campell met while both were senior executives at Universal Music. In true Jerry Maguire fashion, they soon realized they completed each other. Combining their love for digital deal-making, data science, and embracing new technologies from the hundreds of startups coming in the door every monthly seeking partnership with Universal’s artists and their music, they have carried that kindred spirit and collaboration into the world of consulting. Sitting on the other side of the table now, Jon and Bill represent some of the most dynamic companies in the market today using music to connect consumers, fans artists, and brands.
We are thrilled to present them as our guests on The Smartest People In The Room on Thursday, November 19 at 2:00 pm ET/11:00 am PT.
