SF Music Business Professional, Kerry Silverman, Prepares To Launch Bay Area Chapter Of NARIP
Kerry Silverman, an artist manager and president of her own company, Strive Management, is preparing for her next venture...bringing a NARIP chapter to the SF Bay Area. "We have a lot of good organizations here (NARAS, California Lawyers for the Arts, Fantasy Records/Concord Music Group, Universal, etc...) and a lot of talented music industry professionals. I am hoping this branch of NARIP can bring all the Bay Area recording industry professionals together to flourish collectively in the industry as opposed to everyone always doing their own thing," says Kerry, president of Strive Management. Tess Taylor, president of NARIP, will be in town to speak at a workshop for the SFSU MRI program on Oct 15th, so it was the perfect time to launch the SF Chapter that weekend.
The National Association of Record Industry Professionals (NARIP) exists to promote continued education, career advancement, and collegiality among record industry executives. With an emphasis on becoming better informed and more effective executives, NARIP offers professional development opportunities, educational programs and seminars, the opportunity to meet and interact with peers, a job bank, a member resume database for employers, a newsletter, and other services.
Kerry has always been a fan of the win-win business transaction and extremely artist-friendly in her "project management" style of artist management. However, Kerry is excited to get behind a company that is specifically designed to support (and restricted to) record industry professionals. "We should utilize each others' strengths, knowledge, and resources. I teach Artist Management at SFSU in the MRI Program and lecture frequently, so I am big on continuing education, which is something NARIP really provides. Networking opportunities and staying ċin the know' are invaluable to all industry professionals and Tess has created a company that does just that."
