NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Interscope Geffen A&M has hired veteran music industry attorney Nicole Wyskoarko to join the company as an Executive Vice President to oversee their urban operations.
In this newly created post, Wyskoarko will be tasked with ‘streamlining communication, workflow, and coordinated efforts’ across the company’s roster of urban artists. She will report directly to Interscope Geffen A&M Chairman and CEO John Janick.
A Los Angeles native, Wyskoarko matriculated at USC, but transplanted to New York City in 2001 to attend Brooklyn Law School with the goal of breaking into the music industry.
While still studying law, she landed an internship at UMG and accepted a full-time gig at the label after she graduated, rising, over the course of a decade to Senior Vice President of Business & Legal Affairs for the company’s East Coast labels (Island, Def Jam, and Republic) and working with artists such as Kanye West, Alessia Cara and Justin Bieber.
In 2016, she joined the prominent entertainment law firm Carroll, Guido & Groffman, where she represented the LLP’s clients including Meek Mill, DJ Mustard, Playboi Carti and H.E.R.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to be joining John and the entire team at Interscope Geffen A&M. Interscope is a storied label in hip-hop, with a rich history and a current roster of artists that is second to none. Returning to Los Angeles to join the company during such a dynamic period for the music industry is a dream come true for me.”
