Joe Kennedy is no stranger to music and has been playing the piano for over 30 years. He is a dedicated music lover and is known as Pandora’s “resident pop music junkie.”
In an interview with Prosper Blog Kennedy says, “…the more I looked into the music business the more I saw the opportunity for transformational change—change that could make the world better for both those who create music and those who listen to it,” (Blog.Prosper.com).
Here’s a little background information about Joe Kennedy. In 1999, he was the Vice President of Sales, Service and Marketing for Saturn Corporation. With the guidance of Mr. Kennedy Saturn Corporation grew to over $4 billion in revenue. This growth established the company as a top brand for customer satisfaction in the auto industry.
Joe Kennedy wanted to bring that same level of reinvention to Pandora. Kennedy says, “At Pandora we hope to help this new ecosystem by enabling listeners to discover new songs and artists that they wouldn’t otherwise hear,” (Blog.Prosper.com).
California Music Industry Summit understands that and supports artists of all music genres. Talented artists from across the world will showcase their unique music at CMIS on June 10-11, 2011! REGISTER FOR CMIS TODAY!
