Dina Marto is one of music’s fastest rising entrepreneurs, having shattered gender and ethnic glass ceilings during her tenure at Island Def Jam and as an independent music executive. Named to Atlanta Business Chronicle’s “40 Under 40” list at just 27, Dina’s Arab-American roots make her an anomaly in a male-dominated arena, where women of her background have seen rare success. Now, the owner and operator of Atlanta-based Twelve Studios, established in 2012, she’s built one of the South’s most sought-after creative environments to produce Billboard shattering hits. In 2015, Dina received a Proclamation from the City of Atlanta and it was announced that Twelve Studios is Maybach Music Group’s new headquarters by label owner Rick Ross. She also has a formal role as counselor to the music mogul and MMG.
