Marilyn Van Alstyne transformed her love of music into a full time job.
Currently the CEO and founder of EMVE Management Group, Van Alstyne, began her journey as an intern with Puff Daddy’s Bad Boy Entertainment in 1995.
Her point of entry came after hearing Puff pitch his need for interns on the airwaves of New York City’s Hot 97.
A Queens, NY native, Van Alstyne formerly held the position of VP of Branded Entertainment, Planning, Operations & Talent Partnerships at Combs Enterprises Blue Flame Ad Agency. At her post there, she was a trusted advisor and go-to person that handled the day-to-day operations of Revolt TV, Sean John, Blue Flame, Bad Boy Records and Combs Wines & Spirits. She also worked with some of your favorite stars like Rick Ross, Fabolous, French Montana and Meek Mill.
Working in a male-dominated field, Van Alstyne encourages young women that one day hope to do what she does to manage their time effectively. “You don’t want to wake up one day in your forties and regret the decisions that you made in your twenties,” she said.
“You can always start over in your forties, but you might want to challenge yourself to do something new every day—even the things that scare you.”
