Dina Marto is a prominent female entrepreneur in entertainment. Named to Atlanta Business Chronicle’s “40 Under 40” list at just 27, Dina’s Arab-American roots make her an anomaly in a male-dominated arena, where women of her background have seen rare success. Marto’s career was blown wide open when former Island Def Jam Chairman, Antonio “L.A.” Reid, saw her potential as an executive at only 20. Reid asked her to work alongside the late Shakir Stewart at the label’s Atlanta office, where she served as A&R coordinator for albums by Young Jeezy, Nas, Rick Ross, Janet Jackson, and LL Cool J throughout a six-year period. In 2012 she struck out on her own and founded Twelve Studios, Twelve Music Productions, and 7th Level Projects as a way to develop domestic and international talent and secure their futures through major record and publishing deals. In 2015, Dina received a Proclamation from the City of Atlanta and it was announced that Twelve Studios is Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group’s new headquarters.
Today, Dina has built one of the South’s most sought-after creative environments to produce Billboard shattering hits; and continues to solidify her status as a dual-threat, aiming to launch new talent while providing the premiere environment to bring their musical potential to life. Dina was born in Amman, Jordan and grew up in Marietta, Georgia. She holds a Bachelor of Arts from Oglethorpe University. She actively serves the community through her philanthropic endeavors, focused on inspiring youth, women, and raising awareness about mental health.
