Billboard Names Nadia Prescher “Change Agent” for 2021

Billboard magazine recently published its list of “Billboard Change Agents: Leaders Stepping Up In A Year of Turmoil“–one of whom, we’re pleased and proud to report, is our own Board Member Nadia Prescher of Madison House!

From her profile:

Prescher led efforts to raise awareness of the need for federal relief for independent booking agencies through the National Independent Talent Organization, which represents over 100 independent booking agencies, 140-plus management companies, 560-plus associated artists and over 280 other live touring entities. “Many of us have been working overtime to ensure that no stone is left unturned on the road to economic recovery,” says Prescher, who has emphasized how the pandemic has worsened racial income inequality. “The U.S. is still watching billionaires maximize their investments while artists and entertainers struggle to make ends meet. Gig workers and small businesses were the hardest hit.”

My Resolution For This Year: “To advocate for organizations centered around mental health, charitable services and social responsibility within our music community. Backline, The Rex Foundation and HeadCount are doing such incredible work on all of these fronts.”

Thank you to Nadia for all your great work, and congratulations on this well deserved honor.
