No. 93: Walter Kolm | Power 100



Founder/president, WK Entertainment

$200 MILLION-PLUS IN TICKET SALES: The Latin-music management company’s roster -- which includes Maluma, Carlos Vives, CNCO, Silvestre Dangond and reggaet├│n star Wisin -- generated over $200 million in live revenue for 2018, says Kolm, who adds that Wisin’s four-show reunion with former partner Yandel in San Juan, Puerto Rico, grossed $6.2 million. “My goal isn’t to necessarily sign more artists, but to maximize my current roster,” says Kolm, who brokered branding deals with Coca-Cola for Maluma and with Pepsi for Vives.
