NO. 17

Candace Berry

Executive vp/GM, Universal Music Group Distribution

Berry oversees the sales and marketing of Universal's $2 billion in U.S. physical and digital revenue. She manages the company's sales efforts with such top accounts as Apple, Spotify, Target, Walmart and Amazon, and has ushered in new marketing alliances with brands including Samsung, Bud Light, MasterCard and Coke. Among her most notable accomplishments in 2014 was playing a role on the team that struck a U.S. distribution deal for powerhouse indie label Glassnote Records.

My First Job: "In the music industry, it was as an intern for the London Records distributor Terra in Atlanta. My first paying job was as the Arista local marketing rep there."

The App I Can't Live Without: "Sleep Pillow, a white-noise app for those of us with a lot on our minds -- and iTunes and Spotify because of their charts."
