Welcome, Haseeb!

HaseebJavedIntroducing Haseeb Javed, Product Manager, Frontline

I grew up in Islamabad, Pakistan and moved to Vancouver, Canada, with my family for High School and University (UBC, Electrical Engineering). I moved south to California after graduation and worked in the SF / Silicon Valley area for a few years (SW and Wireless devices mostly), both in large organizations such as Sony Mobile and very early stage startups backed by YC.

After soaking in the Silicon Valley experience, I chose to move to New York two years ago — a decision that has kept me really happy and hungover :) Stints at TouchTunes and Sony DADC here in NY have helped me acclimatize to the Music and TV/Film world, easing my transition to Product Management at The Orchard. Very excited to be here!

Welcome, Francesca!

FrancescaFerrariIntroducing Francesca Ferrari, Client Manager, Italy

Hello everyone! I’m Francesca and I’m looking forward to meet all of you (sooner or later)! Something about me… I’m from a city that I’m sure none of you heard before — La Spezia — but it’s worldwide known for its beautiful neighborhood, such as Cinque Terre (The Five Lands) and Portofino. I studied first in Florence, where I lived for almost ten years and where I got my degrees in “History of the Performing Arts” and “Musicology and Musical Heritage.” Then I moved to London where I received a Masters Degree in Music Industry Management at London Met.

SamanthaWolffIntroducing Samantha Wolff, Content Acquisition Coordinator

My name is Samantha and I am so excited to become full-time here at The Orchard as Coordinator for the Content Acquisition team! I have been a part of The Orchard since September, working part-time for BalconyTV, and it has been such a pleasure working here.

I grew up north of the city in Rockland County, specifically New City, and I graduated from Tulane University in New Orleans this past May, where I studied Business and Political Science. I can’t wait to work with and get to know everyone here. I am always down to go to see live music which is where I will be almost every weekend. Please feel free to reach out at any time!

What The #&@$ Do You Do, Emilie?!?

EmilieSnellmanEmilie Snellman
Senior Manager, Scandinavia
Joined The Orchard in January 2011, as an intern

You’re our Scandinavian secret weapon, managing that ever-exciting region for us from our London office. How the #&@$ do you do that?
Hehe, I guess you could say that. It’s an extremely exciting market to be managing that keeps developing and growing. As you know, Scandinavia is the home of Spotify (Sweden), WiMP (Norway) and the first ever streaming and telco bundling service TDC Play (Denmark). Scandinavia is a role model for many other territories as streaming is king and playing a major role of the flourishing Scandinavian music industry.
