Campana began his career in the entertainment industry in 1979 with the Nederlander Organization as part of the management team responsible for the inauguration of Poplar Creek Music Theater in Chicago. During the next 10 years, Campana served as project manager for amphitheater construction in Chicago, Toronto, Cincinnati and Washington, DC and also worked at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles. In 1989, he moved into the booking department and in 1994 became the head of talent acquisition for all Nederlander music facilities outside of Los Angeles.
