Cassie Petrey is the woman behind the world’s most iconic artists’ social media marketing including Backstreet Boys, Camila Cabello, Paramore, Nickelback, and more. Cassie is the co-founder of Crowd Surf, a leading marketing and music management firm. She is an original fan girl whose admiration for the Backstreet Boys at age 12 led her to create a newsletter that reached fans worldwide — then years later she helped seal the band’s decades-long superstardom by re-introducing them to next-generation fans. At age 17 as a college rep for Warner Music Group, Cassie was among the first in the music industry to recognize the vast marketing potential of nascent mid-2000s platforms Myspace and Facebook. Her company Crowd Surf has worked with tech giants Apple and Google, and labels such as Universal, Disney, Sony, Warner and more. Cassie is a Forbes 30 Under 30 and Billboard 30 Under 30 recipient and a leading social media and artist management Hollywood powerhouse.
