crowdSPRING

Jerome, the one and only Frenchman at crowdSPRING (his email signature is "The French Guy"), moved to Chicago 8 years ago. He was born and raised in Poitiers, strategically close to Cognac and Bordeaux. Jerome attended the Regional School of Fine Arts. Then, this musician, DJ, Sci-Fi geek, and art lover decided to start fresh in Chicago. After working for numerous companies such as Groove Distribution, Dr Wax and a few others, Jerome launched his own independent record labels (Still Music, Past Due and LFM) in 2004. Four years later, with more than a 100 artists, 3 groundbreaking compilations and DJ tours in Europe, Canada and the US, Jerome felt that only the smooth and laid-back atmosphere of a start up could meet his relentless need for challenges. Bien sur! Though Jerome has a managerial background in customer service for French corporation Vivendi, he was attracted to crowdSPRING mostly for the raging ping-pong competitions.
