Paradigm has given me an incredible opportunity to be a driving force in growing the Paradigm branding and marketing platform, and I can’t wait to get started.”

Feldman brings more than 25 years of strategic marketing experience, including creating impactful partnerships with many of the largest brands in the world. She was most recently Warner Records’ Executive Vice President of Strategic Marketing, overseeing a team that created marketing platforms and commercial opportunities for the label’s artists. Feldman got her start in college marketing and video promotion at Virgin Records before moving to Warner Bros. Records in 1995. During her time at Warner she led video marketing and founded the label’s first ever sync department, representing the Warner roster to film, television, ad agency and gaming clients, as well as executive producing select soundtracks for film and television, before being named EVP of Strategic Marketing in 2012.
