Black Girl Nerds will be excited to know that Ceci Kurzman has joined the 11-person board for Warner Music Group — now one of only two women on the board — she makes history.
Kurzman is founder and president of Nexus Management Group, a former talent management and current investment company, and has spent 20 years in the music and entertainment industry. “Ceci’s expertise in developing the careers of artists, combined with her work as an entrepreneur and investor, will make her a great addition to our exceptional group of advisors,” said vice chairmen Len Blavatnik Boss Betty Reports.
Kurzman is prepared for this new role, having been on Revlon’s board, holding an executive role with Sony Music’s epic record. If that isn’t enough to sell you on the new board member, maybe the fact that she graduated from the prestigious Ivy-league institution Harvard University will.
“Music already has unprecedented reach and impact across the globe, and every day the opportunities grow more dynamic, disruptive, and ubiquitous. Warner is uniquely positioned in this exciting environment, with an extraordinary roster of artists and songwriters, backed by a forward-thinking leadership team across both recorded music and music publishing. I’m looking forward to working with my new colleagues on the WMG Board to help the company innovate and achieve its ambitious vision.” Kurman said.
Not only is she bringing her expansive experience to this new position, she is also being welcomed with open arms.
Lousada stated, “I’m happy to welcome Ceci and her valuable perspective to the world of WMG, and look forward to working with her, Len, Steve, and the rest of the Board, as we continue to pioneer big, bold opportunities for artists, and accelerate our investments in new talent, territories, and technology.”
