Transitioning from Wall Street to the music industry is no common career path, but it’s one that Camille Hackney talks about proudly.
After graduating from Princeton University, Hackney accepted a job on Wall Street before quickly realizing the demands of the financial industry were not in line with her desired lifestyle.
“A big part of how I guided myself through my career journey is just looking at the people above me and who’ve come before me, and figuring out what they do and if I want to do that,” said Hackney. “What does their work-life balance look like and does that work for me?”
Finding a better balance in the music industry more than 20 year ago, Hackney now serves in a dual role as executive vice president of Brand Partnerships and Commercial Licensing at Atlantic Records, as well as global brand partnerships counsel at Warner Music Group.
