Okay, first impressions: Alexis was tall, handsome, and charming. If we had to choose a dinner date between Mark Zuckerberg and Alexis Ohanian, it would be hands-down Alexis. This guy was taller than everyone expected – we are sure he considered playing in the NBA if the whole entrepreneurship thing didn’t work out for him. Alexis was good-looking as well; ladies flocked to him to get pictures for their social media photo galleries. But perhaps most importantly, he was remarkably charming. It wasn’t just his magnetic charisma he projected during the event, but his enthusiasm that won our hearts. We were surprised to find out how enthusiastic he was to meet all the people who stayed after the event; he honestly held ACTUAL conversations with us, not the usual trivial small talk. We had such a great time with Alexis. We hope that you can join us for our next exciting UB event. Shout out to Aamena for making this invaluable program possible!

If this sounds like you, come listen to Amir Windom, a man who discovers and develops musical talent for a living, speak at the IMU sponsored by Union Board. Windom is the current Vice President of Atlantic Records, and a former A&R (artist & repertoire) representative who made his name by signing “the next big thing”. He has previously worked for Bad Boy Entertainment and Island Def Jam Records.
During his time at Atlantic Records, Windom has worked with major artists such as T.I., Lupe Fiasco, and Estelle, all while being one of the youngest VPs in Atlantic Records’ decorated history. Come listen to him describe what it takes to work for a major record label, and what it is like working alongside some of the biggest names in the music industry.
Windom is speaking in the Whittenberger Auditorium at the IMU on October 10th, starting at 6:00 pm.
