Women have become a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry. More and more women are getting tired of taking back seat to their male counterparts. And this rise of talent and ambition is getting some people a lot more interest.
Take Desiree Perez as a prime example. In a sense she is standing with a male peer. In this case it’s JAY-Z. But she’s ranking one spot higher on the power 100. This is rather remarkable given her position as Chief Operating Officer of Roc Nation. Roc Nation is a business owned by JAY-Z. So having someone in his employee rank higher in the power 100 is notable to say the least.
Of course it’s important to remember that the ranking is friendly competition. Desiree Perez and JAY-Z aren’t just employer and employee. The pair are also fast friends who really enjoy what the other brings to any partnership. It’s one of the reasons that they work so well together.
And of course JAY-Z is human. Another thing he likes is when someone can increase his fortune. And that’s something that Desiree Perez has been able to do with Roc Nation. She’s one of the dominant women in the music industry for good reason. This talented woman gets the results she goes after.
She’s one of the true legends among music executives. And in many ways she’s been one of the influencers who made JAY-Z who he is today. She showcases that a woman can hold a position of power and influence even when her name isn’t quite as well known. The kingmakers aren’t always behind the scenes anymore. And Desiree Perez has shown herself to be one of the best of the best when it comes to generating influence.
