IGA A&R ADDS A
SECOND CHIEF

Nicole Wyskoarko has been promoted to Executive Vice President/Co-Head of A&R at Interscope Geffen A&M, joining Sam Riback, who has been Head of A&R since 2016.

Wyskoarko will continue to oversee the Urban A&R team. She and Riback, who supervises the pop/rock A&R squad, will collaborate on bringing the various A&R units together to function cohesively. Wyskoarko will continue to report directly to Interscope Geffen A&M Chairman and CEO John Janick.

“Nicole has proven to be a leader within Interscope, a mentor to her team, a savvy dealmaker and an important voice within our industry,” Janick said. “This promotion reflects her success and amazing track record with our diverse roster of artists.”

Wyskoarko joined IGA in 2018 as Executive Vice President of Urban Operations. She has presided over the Urban A&R department during a period that has seen the success of such artists as Juice WRLDDaBaby and Summer Walker.

Wyskoarko is also an attorney. Prior to joining the law firm of Carroll, Guido & Groffman as a partner in 2016, she spent 11 years at UMG, rising to Senior Vice President of Business & Legal Affairs for the company’s East Coast labels (Island, Def Jam and Republic).

Joie Manda, Executive Vice President of Interscope Geffen A&M, said: “Nicole’s incredible A&R acumen, her ability to empower her team and collaborate with our partners while keeping the big picture in focus has made her an invaluable member of the IGA team.”
