    Head of Global Marketing, Apple Music
  • Company

The star of Apple’s annual developers event in June wasn’t CEO Tim Cook or a new device but Saint John, who persuaded the audience of thousands to rap to the Sugar Hill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight.” A former head of music and entertainment marketing at ­PepsiCo, where she inked its $50 million sponsorship deal with ­Beyoncé, Saint John joined Apple in 2014 when the tech giant acquired Beats, for which she led marketing. Since then, she has been charged with making Apple Music into the next big thing—and so far has signed marketing deals with Mary J. Blige and Taylor Swift.
