Desiree Perez Impacts on the Success of Roc Nation  0

Desiree Perez is the influential force behind the success of ROC Nation. At the company, she has participated in various activities to ensure that the firm achieves its goals. She is the president and the general manager of operations at ROC Nation. The main aim of ROC Nation is to help artists with their music recordings. Apart from leadership, she is also skilled in publishing. Her unique entrepreneurial skills earned her a job at Samsung alongside Rihanna. Together they helped in marketing their products.

 

She partners with Jay Z, the renowned rapper and successful investor. They have been fuelling the development and growth of ROC Nation for about 20 years since its establishment. She is very dedicated to achieving success with all her ventures and investments. She manages collectives like Hova Circle and many other lucrative albums. For singles, she has equally contributed to their popularity. They include Chaka Pilgrim, Jay Brown and much more.

 

For the company to actively accomplish its goals, Jay Z has decided to quit Live Nation and work entirely for the success of ROC Nation. However, his investments at Live Nation have a net worth of $150 million and above. He has been serving at the company for about 10 years.

 

Live Nation is saddened to let him go but still hopes that they will forever remain business partners. It is because the company finds it less meaningful to deal with recorded hits. With Roc Nation, Jay Z and Desiree Perez are still in the business and are known for recording for popular artists such as Meek Mill, Fat Joe, Rihanna and many others.

 

The two business partners held business meetings with the Chairman of Universal Music Group in Santa Monica. The alleged reasons are yet to come in the light because ROC Nation is known to succeed in everything they partake of.
