Ty Stiklorius

Founder and CEO, Friends at Work

For merging music and activism

Longtime music manager Ty Stiklorius—who steers the careers of John Legend, Ciara, and Lindsey Stirling, among others—launched a new firm in 2015 called Friends at Work, which combines traditional management services with social activism. “We don’t work with artists who are not engaged in using their platform for good,” says Stiklorius. “I have no interest in just having another pop hit on the radio.” Together, Stiklorius and Legend launched the #FreeAmerica campaign, which raises awareness about mass incarceration and other issues, and she’s partnered with attorney Adam Foss in activist group Prosecutor Impact. Stiklorius, who cofounded and helps run Legend’s Get Lifted film-production com­pany, is also helping Stirling turn one of her ultra-popular YouTube channels into a destination for raising awareness for mental illness.
