Ryan MazieIntroducing Ryan Mazie, Manager, Theatrical Publicity

My name is Ryan Mazie and I am the new manager of National Theatrical Publicity.

Originally from New Jersey, I spent my last semester of Emerson College “abroad” in Los Angeles and never left.

I started my career doing personal publicity for an array of actors, musicians, directors, and writers before moving over to Focus Features where I have been for the past year before joining The Orchard.

John GetterIntroducing, John Getter, Senior Director, Technology

In the summer of 2003, I met my friend for lunch and he gave me the napkin pitch for what was to become IODA. At the time, I wasn’t so sure digital music would catch on, but I told him it sounded fun and I quickly joined the company. Fast forward to 2012 and IODA became part of The Orchard family. I was part of the integration team and I was very impressed with everyone I worked with. Ever since, I’ve followed the successes of The Orchard and watched it continue to grow and be a big part of the music industry. Now, I’m happy to say, I’m returning to one of my favorite places to work.
