Rick Haayen founded Music at Work in May 2014, he grew up on both sides of the Atlantic, becoming equally fluent and at home as an American in Holland or a Dutchman in the US. Combining both cultures and experiences has given him a unique International perspective. Rick has worked over 30 years in the international entertainment industry both in Europe and the United States.
Having worked at major labels (Universal Music Group in USA + Europe) as well as independent labels (CNR + V2 Benelux in Europe) and management firms (The Entertainment Group & Montana ECI), Haayen decided to set up his own firm, Music at Work – a management & consultancy firm that represents successful Artists & Producers in the global pop and dance music scene, singer/songwriters from all genres, and also provides label services, legal services & publishing options for the entertainment industry at large.
Music at Work operates both in Amsterdam & Los Angeles, creating an international music hub for her clients. The core business will always be entertainment with Music at Work – creating a flexible and comfortable home for the creative community as a whole no matter where the talent calls home.
