Jimmy Iovine Angel · Malibu, California, United States
Jimmy Iovine, the Chairman of Universal Music Group’s Interscope Geffen A&M Records unit, is regarded as both a legendary figure in the music industry as well as a forward-thinking visionary.The Brooklyn-born Iovine’s four-decade career began when he was just out of his teens. As a recording engineer, he found himself in the studio withJohn Lennon and Bruce Springsteen (Born To Run, Darkness On The Edge Of Town) before setting his sights on being a producer. Building on what he’d learned from the masters, he helped Patti Smith (Easter), Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (Damn The Torpedoes), and U2 (Rattle & Hum) -- all current Rock and Roll Hall of Famers -- achieve career breakthroughs. He also produced Stevie Nicks first solo album (Bella Donna) as well as albums for Dire Straits (Making Movies) and The Pretenders (Get Close).Interscope, the record label that Iovine co-founded in 1990, has come to be widely regarded as the home of music’s most consistently fearless, intriguing, and popular artists, including Dr. Dre, Nine Inch Nails, U2, Mary J. Blige, No Doubt, Marilyn Manson, The Black Eyed Peas, Eminem, 50 Cent, and Lady Gaga. Powered by Iovine’s peerless rapport with musicians, new buzzed-about stars like Azealia Banks, Ellie Goulding, Kendrick Lamar, and Lana Del Rey, are ensuring that that reputation endures.With the rise of hip-hop, alternative culture, and technology, Iovine didn’t rest on his legacy but instead used his credibility and integrity to transform Interscope into a multi-media powerhouse that puts artists and ideas first. “The way I produce records now is I support record producers,” Iovine has said.Iovine co-produced the hit Eminem movie 8 Mile directed by Curtis Hanson and executive produced the critically acclaimed LeBron James documentary More Than A Game.In 2006, Iovine and hip-hop pioneer/producer Dr. Dre co-founded Beats By Dr. Dre, a high-performance headphone and sound transmission company intent on recapturing the fidelity of the studio. “Dre’s and my mission for Beats was to introduce premium audio to a generation that had never experienced the emotion of music as intended by the artists because of substandard ear buds and PCs,” says Iovine.Thanks to the sleekly designed headphones, as well as expansion into smart phones and car audio systems, Beats By Dr. Dre has been widely successful, securing the #1 spot in the billion+ dollar premium headphones industry. Iovine is now expanding the Beats Brand and reputation into the digital music space with Beats Music—the first streaming music service delivering contextually and culturally relevant playlists, personalized for each user, by real music experts. In many ways, Beats Music is Iovine’s latest “supergroup” with former Topspin exec Ian Rogers and Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor will work alongside Beats Electronics President Luke Wood to create the next chapter of the music business and bring streaming music to the masses.For the last two years, Iovine has found a new outlet for his hard-earned wisdom. Most Americans know him as the outspoken and frank mentor who shares his insight and expertise with contestants on Fox’s ratings blockbuster American Idol. Under Iovine’s watchful eye, Idol’s standout performers now release their music through Interscope, whose A&R and marketing strategies have led to breakout careers for Scotty McCreery and Phillip Phillips.

Tom Chapman Angel · London, England, United Kingdom
Tom Chapman OBE is an investor in early-stage companies and co-founder of MATCHESFASHION.COM. Tom has an investment portfolio that spans multiple industries including technology, logistics, beauty, fashion, health, and medical cannabis. He invests in committed founders and experienced management teams to grow disruptive mission-driven businessesthat leverage technology to deliver a better service to consumers and transform the way the world works. Tom's recent investments include disruptive beauty brand HEYDAY, a one-stop shop for personalised skincare treatments; size-inclusive womenswear brand Universal Standard; Caliva, California's largest fully licensed integrated cannabis dispensary, retailer and distributor; by Humankind, a personal care brand seeking to eliminate single-use plastic; Convoy, which connects truckers with shippers to fill unused trucking capacity, reducing the environmental impact of freight; feminine health brand, OHNE; baby food business, Cerebelly; medical cannabis startup, Plena; and the world’s first stock exchange dedicated to the IPO and trading of commercial real estate assets, IPSX. Tom's work as an investor builds on his experience founding MATCHESFASHION.COM, operating at the forefront of the changing face of retail for more than 30 years. With his wife Ruth, they grew the company from a single bricks-and-mortar store to a global luxury fashion brand with a reputation for supporting and nurturing new and emerging talent, and are credited with introducing designers such as Versace, Prada and Bottega Veneta to the UK. Under Tom's leadership, MATCHESFASHION.COM invested heavily in technology across all areas of the business, enabling the company to better understand the lives of its customers and provide them with a fast, convenient and highly personalised service. MATCHESFASHION.COM was one of the first luxury brands to go online in 2005; one of the first businesses to launch 90-minute delivery in 2016; and one of the first retailers to build a platform to provide a single truly unified view of customer's shopping across both online and physical channels.It was, however, his understanding of how digital could radically transform how companies engaged with their customers and his appetite for challenging traditional practices that led to him being inducted into the Business of Fashion’s Hall of Fame in 2018 and being described as a “retail innovator”. Tom recognised that MATCHESFASHION.COM could use digital not only to reach a global audience quickly but to build highly personal, intimate customer relationships, engaging shoppers with rich, resonant content and storytelling. Paired with his challenger mentality, this insight saw Tom transform the company from a 14-store physical retailer into a leading global luxury e-commerce giant. From the launch of their website in 2007, MATCHESFASHION.COM grew at a rate of up to 100 per cent per year, raising £20 million in 2012 for a minority stake in the business.In 2013, Tom's commitment to digital saw him rebrand all Matches' physical stores as MATCHESFASHION.COM. These decisions collectively enabled the business to accelerate from a valuation of £76m in 2012 to an acquisition price in excess of $1 billion just five years later. In 2017-18, the business had 95 per cent of sales online and 85 per cent internationally. MATCHESFASHION.COM is also credited with pioneering blended retail, seamlessly bringing together physical and digital commerce to connect with customers over multiple touchpoints – whether that be through the company's events, magazine or private shopping experiences. Before the sale of the business, Tom conceived of 5 Carlos Place, a five-storey townhouse combining luxury private shopping in a home environment with a purpose-built broadcasting hub and events space focused on creating engaging content for MATCHESFASHION.COM's 100 million annual online visitors. Carlos Place was an extension of the private-shopping concept behind No.23, which reinvented retail service along the lines of private-client banking, delivering a highly personalised, intimate, bespoke shopping experience. Throughout the growth of MATCHESFASHION.COM, Tom has focused on keeping customers and their lifestyles at the centre of all company decisions, recognising that top-class service is the foundation of all consumer-facing businesses and that technology investment should always enable a business to connect better with the consumer and support them. Like MATCHESFASHION.COM, many of Tom's investments both challenge the status quo and have strong brands that build deep, personal relationships with customers by connecting with them across both physical and digital touchpoints, and place special importance on social responsibility, inclusiveness and environmental impact. Having been described as "trailblazers" by The New York Times and "pioneers" by VOGUE, Tom and Ruth Chapman were awarded Draper's Lifetime Achievement Award for their contributions to fashion retail in 2017. In the same year MATCHESFASHION.COM won British Luxury Brand of the Year at the prestigious Walpole British Luxury Awards. Tom Chapman, along with his wife Ruth Chapman, were awarded OBEs in the 2020 New Year Honours list for services to the international fashion retail industry. An advocate of arts, sustainability and cultural causes, Tom is a member of the Innovation Circle at the Serpentine Gallery.
