LOS ANGELES, USA // Allison Kaye is the President of SB Projects and partner at Ithaca Holdings LLC, which houses SB Projects, a diversified entertainment and media company at the intersection of music, film, television, technology, and social good.
She oversees all of the company’s divisions, including the careers of SB Projects' talent roster. With the worldwide success of Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Zac Brown Band, and Dan + Shay, Kaye has led the charge in positioning SB Projects amongst the industry elite.
Since joining SB Projects in 2009, Kaye’s accolades include a sold out, $155 million gross Justin Bieber arena tour, Martin Garrix’s platinum selling single “Animals,” Dan + Shay’s CMT Music Award for hit song “Tequila,” and most recently, Ariana Grande’s Sweetener album which earned No. 1 after having the largest streaming week for a pop album by a female artist, ever.
Kaye was instrumental to the release of Grande’s massive hit “thank u, next” off the Sweetener album which scored Grande’s first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 spot and the subsequent music video became one of the most impactful viral events in YouTube’s history breaking the record for the most views (55.4 million) in 24 hours.
Kaye was also essential to the success of Grande’s first headline stadium tour, as well as her record-breaking single “Problem” and two Grammy nominations for Best Pop Vocal Album for My Everything and Best Pop Duo/Group for “Bang Bang.”
Kaye played a fundamental role in the release of Justin Bieber’s fourth studio album Purpose in 2015, which includes Justin’s first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 single “What Do You Mean,” as well as hits “Sorry” and “Where Are U Now.”
She also helped oversee the following worldwide Purpose tour and successful launch of the accompanying merchandise collection. Furthermore, Kaye orchestrated the “Despacito” remix, which is currently tied for the longest run at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and recently helped sign Zac Brown Band to manage the band’s music and brand expansion.
In 2017, Kaye helped lead the team who organized the historic One Love Manchester benefit concert in the wake of the horrific attacks at the Manchester Arena after an Ariana Grande concert. Just a few months later, she executive produced the Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief telethon which aired on every major television network and helped raise over $64M to aid those affected by hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.
Kaye has been named one of Billboard’s Top 100 Women in Music the past 5 consecutive years. Kaye received a B.A. in Political Science from Lehigh University and a JD from Duke University School of Law. She currently resides in Manhattan Beach, CA with her husband and three kids.
