As chairman and CEO of Columbia Records since 2018, Perry oversees a diverse roster of artists including AC/DC, Adele, Beyoncé, Barbra Streisand, Billy Joel, Blink-182, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Central Cee, Depeche Mode, Halsey, Harry Styles, The Kid LAROI, Lil Nas X, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, Rosalía and Tyler the Creator.

Prior to Columbia Records, Perry was the president and partner of SONGS Music Publishing, where he signed The Weeknd, XXXtentacion, Lorde, Diplo and others before the company’s sale to Kobalt in December 2017.

Funds raised at the luncheon will go toward UJA’s annual campaign supporting the year-round work of confronting antisemitism, promoting inclusion and caring for New Yorkers of all backgrounds. A portion of the proceeds will also support UJA’s Music for Youth, which helps thousands of young people connect to life-changing music programs.

Working with a network of hundreds of nonprofits, UJA extends its reach from New York to Israel to nearly 70 other countries around the world, touching the lives of 4.5 million people annually. Every year, UJA-Federation provides approximately $180 million in grants.
