The 2018 Billboard Awards were aired live Sunday night. The Chainsmokers; Alex Pall and Drew Taggart, were among the many presenters. Alex and Drew took the opportunity while presenting the Award for Top Hot 100 Song of 2018, with singer and songwriter Halsey, to honor Avicii, who recently passed away after suffering from longtime mental health issues. Avicii was adored by many music fans and those who are in the music industry; however, Alex and Drew shared a special bond with the Swedish DJ and music producer.
Before Alex, Drew and Halsey presented the award to Luis Fonsi for “Despacito,” the three of them took the opportunity to share a few words with the 12,000 audience members and millions of viewers by television. Clearly emotional, Drew started the brief tribute by stating, “Avicii was an artist who inspired so many in so many ways and meant so much to us and the EDM community.” Halsey added, “Everyone who worked with him would say that he was such a joy…It’s a reminder to all of us to be there and support and love our friends and family members who may be struggling with mental illness.”
Alex and Drew took another moment later in the night to pay tribute to Avicii when the duo won the Top Dance/Electronic Award. “We want to dedicate this award to Avicii. He is someone who made us believe that this is something we could do with our lives. [He] inspired all of us, influenced our music and influence pop music in general. He will be missed, and I hope he’s found peace,” stated Drew.
Alex and Drew formed The Chainsmokers in 2012 after both met while Drew was attending college and Alex was interning for Interscope Records. Their EDM style has made the group hugely popular among fans and often crosses over into pop music. The duo released their first single “#Selfie” for free in 2013 and performed their first live performance in 2014. Their second hit single has received over one billion listeners on Spotify. The Chainsmokers are the first-ever group to be recognized for the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Award.
In March, The Chainsmokers debuted their latest single release of “Memories…Do Not Open,” which is titled “Everybody Hates Me.” The single was released during a live performance in Prague.
The United States of America is home to one of the largest entertainment markets in the world – that’s not to say it isn’t extremely popular in other necks of the woods, though. Just last year, music and entertainment generated revenues of $17-odd billion, set only to increase with the proliferation of digital music streaming availability.That sum is only set to increase in coming years. As one can imagine, music and entertainment industry executives are commonly slammed with loads of responsibilities. Executives that can’t hang with such demands are quickly shoveled out of the mix. Those who can, however, often become extensively tenured in the industry – like Desiree Perez.Desiree “Dez” Perez has been an accomplice of Shawn Carter, better known by his stage name Jay-Z, for more than two decades. The year after his entertainment label Roc Nation was founded, Dez Perez was brought on board as Chief Operating Officer, a title she still holds today.

It’s always painful for a company to lose their most valuable asset. While most think the most valuable corporate asset is money; it’s actually hard-working employees. For CP+B, the most valuable asset is Lori Senecal. Since joining the company, Senecal’s contributions have done nothing but benefit the firm.
She began serving as President and CEO of MDC Partners Network. Lori viewed the opportunity to work with CP+B as the next step in her career. It wasn’t long after she joined the company that the board created a position just for her; Global CEO of MDC Partners.
Everyone at the company loves Lori Senecal. Sadly, she announced that she will be leaving the company at the end of the year. It’s not because she doesn’t like working with CP+B; she does. Senecal’s more of serial-professional. She works for a company for a short while before moving on to another firm.
While at CP+B, she made a name for herself. Lori Senecal doesn’t like bragging, but her colleagues do. They boast about her taking the American Airlines account away from TM Advertising. A little background on the American Airlines – TM Advertising relationship: they’ve worked together for over 20 years.
With her retirement looming overhead, her focus shifts to developing the next generation of leaders. Working alongside her business partner and friend Chuck Porter, founder of CP+B, she plans on building a new team that will excel beyond her accomplishments. Going forward, she’s really focused and determined to find the right people.
According to Porter, the two of them are thinking carefully about their next move. The decision will affect the company and all of its offices. It’s not only important to promote the right people, but they also have to figure out a way to keep the company strong.
Fortunately, the next generation of leaders is up to the task. Many of the company’s offices have already experienced some change, promoting certain members to Presidents. Things look good for the company’s future. Follow her on Twitter for more.
