Nicole Wyskoarko Joins Interscope as EVP of Urban Operations

Interscope Geffen A&M has hired veteran music industry attorney Nicole Wyskoarko to join the company as EVP of Urban Operations. In this newly created position, Wyskoarko will be tasked with implementing processes to streamline communication, workflow, and coordinated efforts across the urban roster of the company, according to a press release. She will report directly to Interscope Geffen A&M Chairman and CEO John Janick.

“Nicole brings a tremendous breadth of experience to Interscope, having worked both inside and outside record companies over the course of her career,” commented Janick.  “We are always looking ahead to see what will position us best in a business that’s rapidly changing.  Nicole joining the company in this new role does exactly that; she’s here to help wherever and whenever she’s needed.”

A Los Angeles native and USC alumnus, Wyskoarko has spent the last 17 years living in New York City, having moved there in 2001 to attend Brooklyn Law School.  While still in law school, she landed an internship in a business & legal affairs department at Universal Music Group and was offered a full-time position after graduation. She worked at UMG for the next 11 years, rising to Senior Vice President of Business & Legal Affairs for the company’s East Coast labels (Island, Def Jam, and Republic) and working with artists such as Kanye West, Alessia Cara and Justin Bieber. In 2016 she joined the law firm of Carroll, Guido & Groffman, LLP as a partner, where she worked with Meek Mill, DJ Mustard and Playboi Carti, among others.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to be joining John and the entire team at Interscope Geffen A&M,” Wyskoarko said. “Interscope is a storied label in hip-hop, with a rich history and a current roster of artists that is second to none.  Returning to Los Angeles to join the company during such a dynamic period for the music industry is a dream come true for me.”
