Ari is the President & CEO at Degy. He started in music with modest internships at record labels, and signed his first band to a management deal at age 20. That was the starting point of Degy where he built the business in his bedroom in a rental house at The University of Michigan. Degy was first formed with his business partner as a management firm and later refocused its business into a full-service booking agency in 2001. Outside of business, Ari likes to play tennis, golf, play cards, travel (which he does a little too much of), and most importantly, spend time with his wife and twins.
