Prior to that, she was instrumental in the success of Genie Music and negotiated hundreds of distribution deals with local artists and labels.
While working with its key local accounts, such as YG, Antenna and SM, she managed several release campaigns and built strong relationships in the independent music community. She will be based in Seoul, Korea.
Wei Keng has previous experience in the entertainment industry and joins ADA from the Samsung brand marketing team.
She has also held roles at BMG, Comedy Central, Paramount Channel, and MTV Asia, where she was part of the talent management team behind the production of live events such as the MTV Asia Awards.
