Billboard Women In Music Honors The Orchard COO Colleen Theis

Billboard Women In Music Honors The Orchard COO Colleen Theis

Congratulations to The Orchard’s Chief Operating Officer, Colleen Theis, for her Billboard Women in Music recognition. This past year has been a challenging year for many, and through it all, Colleen has led the global company and teams with tenacity, grace, and kindness continually expanding The Orchard’s unique proposition worldwide. 

Throughout social distancing measures since the outbreak of COVID-19, Colleen has fearlessly driven a team of 45 markets worldwide with an unmatched sense of leadership and dedication to The Orchard’s employees, artists and labels — pivoting to remote while super-serving our clients to navigate this next chapter in their careers. 

We also congratulate all our friends and partners who have made the list including Camille Soto Malave, Founder & CEO GLAD Empire and Clara Pablo, Senior VP Global Marketing of WK Entertainment.

Since March, Theis has led The Orchard’s 40-plus teams through the coronavirus pandemic by “pivoting to remote working on a few days’ notice” while continuing to “manage revenue and growth” and “maintaining and developing the teams globally.” New roster additions include Michigan rapper Bfb Da Packman and Chilean star Harry Nach, and labels Smash the House, Found Frequencies, Fool’s Gold, Ignition Records and Omnivore. In the United States, they have earned “326 appearances on the Billboard 200” so far this year and “17 top 10 releases,” including G Herbo’s PTSD, Joyner Lucas’s ADHD and Anuel AA’s Emmanuel.
