Before Endeavor, Saint John was Chief Brand Officer of Uber, Head of Global Consumer Marketing at Apple Music & iTunes, and Head of Music and Entertainment Marketing at PepsiCo.
Michele Rigby Assad was previously an undercover officer in the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency’s Directorate of Operations. Assad worked at the CIA for over 10 years, trained as a counter-terrorism specialist and working in clandestine Middle Eastern locations. After retirement, Assad began an organization that worked to assist persecuted Christians - ultimately becoming so successful that their efforts resulted in a group from Northern Iraq escaping in December 2015.
