• Seeking someone who has experience with Reggae music in the A&R department
through a widely known music company.
There is a lack of artists in the reggae community
compared to the other various genres. I am here to
make a life changing decisions that will impact the
music industry in the best way possible. When most

much more to the reggae genre in this generation,
especially when it can be combined with other
genres such as pop or rock. I plan on bringing this
community back to life by scouting out the best
talent to properly be a voice for the reggae

Forbes valued more than 200 global brands by looking at three years of earnings and allocating a percentage of those earnings based on the role brands play in each industry (e.g., high for luxury goods and beverages, low for airlines and oil companies). We applied the average price-to-earnings multiple over the past three years to these earnings to arrive at the final brand value.
