CEO & Founder, Rebel
Adam Leber is an American talent manager, entrepreneur, investor, and philanthropist. Born and raised in Queens, New York, Leber’s unconventional path through the music industry began while he was a student at UMass Amherst, where a successful side hustle as a DJ and event promoter inspired him to drop out and pursue an internship at Loud Records. The internship at Loud led to a job in the label’s marketing department, where he worked with quintessential New York hip-hop artists such as Mobb Deep, Big Pun, and the Wu-Tang Clan.
Leber eventually decided to change lanes in 2004 and began his career in artist management and has gone on to manage Lil Nas X, Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, Labrinth, Noah Cyrus, Will.i.am, Avril Lavigne, Fifth Harmony, Travis Scott, XXXtentacion, and more throughout his career.
Always able to spot trends, Leber began to focus on Silicon Valley in 2007 and diversified his business by starting an investment fund in 2008. Today, Leber is an early investor in companies such as Uber, Everlane, Airbnb, Acorns, Reface, Stance, and Hyperloop. Currently, he manages a multimillion-dollar fund focused on consumer goods and technology, with investments in over 50 companies.
In 2019, Leber stepped into television where he acted as Music Supervisor for HBO’s runaway hit, Euphoria. This role earned him his first Emmy nomination in 2020.
Leber currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife, Sarah Boyer, and daughter, Micki Mae.
