Paul Katz Interview – Music Industry Exec and Social Entrepreneur
William Garrett’s Room Tone interview with entertainment industry executive, lawyer, two-time Grammy nominee and social entrepreneur, Paul Katz. After working at EMI London in business affairs, Katz joined the fledgling entertainment company Zomba, eventually landing in NYC as a leader of Zomba’s US operations. There, he grew the record label Jive, with groundbreaking signings in rock, rap, hip hop, R&B and infectious pop. As founder and CEO of Entertain Impact, Katz pairs the power of celebrity and causes for what he calls “cause entertainment.”
With his love for music, humanity and a Rolodex to die for, Katz is able to help affect real and positive change in the world, from eradicating the world of polio to, with the help of Beyoncé, saving children’s lives at a small hospital in Haiti.
