Executive Q&A: Jonathan Azu, founder and managing partner, Culture Collective

Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2020, 6:45 p.m. 007 Whitman School of Management

Presented by the David M. Rezak Music Business Lecture Series

After years of driving success for some of the industry’s most iconic artists, brands and companies, Jonathan Azu started artist management firm Culture Collective for reasons bigger than music. With a focus on urban genre clients, Culture Collective is representing creatives who are redefining their culture while also exemplifying and promoting diverse and inclusive leadership in entertainment which is greatly lacking in music companies today.

Prior to his current role, Azu, a two-time Billboard 40 Under 40 Power Player, was executive vice president and general manager of Red Light Management; executive vice president of operations and business development for Superfly Presents; and vice president of music partnerships for CBS Radio. He is a graduate of Drake University and currently serves as a board trustee.

In his career Azu has overseen the development of many notable artists and brands including Anita Baker, Emily King, Cory Henry, Luke James, Michelle Williams, Miguel, Kool & the Gang, Lecrae, Leon Thomas, Outside Lands Music Festival, Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, and many more.
