Heather Parry: Early Career

Heather Parry launched her entertainment career at MTV News. During a 12-year tenure at the network, she climbed the ranks to west coast bureau chief.

Heather Parry: The Happy Madison Years

Parry helped Happy Madison profit until 2015 when Live Nation Entertainment poached her to run its new film and entertainment division. At the time, industry outlets commented that Parry’s ascent to Live Nation happened without much fanfare.

But the Pennsylvania-native quickly proved that a lack of pomp doesn’t amount to a lack of productivity.

Under her leadership, in just three short years, Parry produced memorable films including “Gaga: Five Foot Two” and the Sean Combs’s vehicle “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story.” She also worked closely with Colin Hanks on “Eagles of Death Metal: Nos Amis,” a moving documentary that catches up with the band after its 2015 tragedy.

Heather Parry: “A Star is Born”

Recently, Parry served as executive producer on the award-winning 2018 remake of “A Star is Born.” After hearing about the project, she immediately tracked down Bradley Cooper’s agent Dave Bugliari — who was skiing at the time — and explained how Live Nation could provide unrivaled promotional opportunities. Ultimately, Team Cooper agreed, and the partnership fueled the film to box office glory.

Parry is an experienced industry player who regularly turns notional dreams into reality. She’s an expert at leveraging long-fostered connections to create synergistic alliances that maximize exposure and expand global audiences.
