“One of the reasons I’m so passionate about mentorship and coaching in the #music industry is the fact there simply wasn’t much of it available when I was getting started. As much as I loved my five years at PolyGram Records and 10 years at Sony Music, inspiring leadership, sadly, wasn’t readily available. However, I had the benefit of really learning the ropes of #radio promotion and #publicity from Ivar Hamilton, one of the best during my time in the #Toronto branch office at PolyGram Records. Without his influence and example I never would have been in a position to run the National Promotion & Media Relations team at Sony Music. Thank you, Ivar! And #congratulations on celebrating 30 years at Universal Music/PolyGram Records.” Gratefully, Vel.
