Desiree Perez and the Rising Influence of Women in the Music Industry
Everyone who has any knowledge about the music industry knows that, world wide, it is a multi billion dollar edifice (estimates place its aggregate haul industry wide for 2016 at a little over $ 17 billion!) that creates jobs for hundreds of thousands of people, not just by creating and advancing singers and song writers, but also by creating and advancing producers, executives, talent managers, agents, graphic designers and marketing specialists. For a very long time now this exceedingly important industry has been one that has primarily been dominated mainly by men and whilst there are certainly many very popular female music stars, such as Beyonce, Rihanna or Taylor Swift, but when one turns attention to who is running the boardrooms and actually managing the talent and making the deals behind the scenes, they are typically men. However, this trend has been changing rather dramatically of late with the emergence of a rapidly increasing number of female executives and business managers, one of the most notable and successful of whom is the high profile entrepreneur and networker, Desiree Perez.
Desiree Perez is perhaps best known for her close business relationship with world famous rap star, Shawn Carter, more commonly known by his stage moniker, Jay-Z and his companies, Roc Nation and Tidal. Indeed, Ms. Perez has been spoken of by those who are associated with Jay-Z and his previously mentioned businesses that Roc Nation’s phenomenal success of late has been, in large part, due to the valiant organizing efforts and business deals of Ms. Perez.

With a mover and shaker like Perez, who has worked with other big name stars like the previously mentioned Rihanna, and piloted companies of her own long before joining Jay-Z’s outfit, the future looks exceedingly bright. If nothing else she has shown that there is indeed a place for skilled and determined business women within the upper echelons of the world wide music industry.
