A&R Manager, Island Records

A native New Yorker, Ziggy got his start in the music industry interning for Eric Wong at Atlantic Records. After only six months, Eric hired him to work for his artist management company. In 2011 Ziggy joined Island Def Jam Music Group as an assistant to Eric Wong in their marketing division. Eighteen months later, Mr. Wong promoted Ziggy to the role of manager of artist development, working with a range of artists such as: Justin Bieber, The Wanted, The Killers, and Neon Trees. Within the year, Mr. Chareton made the switch to A&R. Working directly under David Massey, Ziggy soon learned the intricacies of the entire A&R process. His first signing was a female artist by the name of Kiesza, and six months later she scored her first #1 single in the UK with Hideaway. Recently Ziggy was credited with signing Shawn Mendes, the youngest artist to notch a #1 Billboard Album in the past 5 years.
