Under Ethiopia’s leadership, Motown once again has become one of the most culturally important music companies in the world and continues to elevate music and artistry. I look forward to working with Ethiopia, the dynamic executive team, the artists, and creatives within the Motown family. I’m humbled and excited to contribute to what she and the team have built and play a part in breaking the next generation of global superstars.”
