Kallman

Chairman / CEO

Atlantic has enjoyed an unparalleled run in the nearly 15 years since Kallman and co-chair Julie Greenwald took the helm. At the core of that success is the music Kallman, as the de facto head of A&R, has overseen. Game recognizes game, and because he’s not only a veteran DJ with a collection of approximately a million records (no joke) but an accomplished songwriter and producer who co-penned Cardi B’s summer smash “I Like It,” the smart artist values his opinions more than those of the average executive. Plus, the company’s roster and staff are so deep that last fall it spun off its Elektra subsidiary as a standalone music company, moving multiple artists to the imprint so they wouldn’t be overlooked at Atlantic proper.
