Meet The Founders
Miatta David Johnson
Professionalism, honesty and integrity have been a part of Miatta David Johnson’s motto since her early days as a financial reporter for media giant and owner of The Wall Street Journal, Dow Jones. Although the New York University (NYU) graduate was on a fast track in the world of financial journalism, Miatta couldn’t ignore her passion for the business of entertainment. After two years at Dow Jones and five years of reporting under her belt, the Liberian native left the security of a corporate position and didn’t look back. Today as president and CEO of MVD Inc, Miatta has quickly become a powerful force in the world of media relations, event production and brand building. Over the past 14 years, Miatta has been instrumental in helping to brand some of the biggest names (Kanye West, Outkast and Timbaland) in entertainment.
