Micha’s resume reads like an all-star list of global companies. She has worked for and lead marketing teams for NIKE, Brand Jordan, Diageo, Frito-Lay, Cadbury, Kraft and Moët-Hennessy.
After years of rising among the corporate ranks, the London School of Economics graduate decided to build her own powerhouse company. With an army of well qualified and experienced professionals by her side, Micha has created Soleil Entertainment. A company with the potential to completely rewire the culture and practices within the film industry. While she appreciates the lessons and relationships earned from the corporate world, Micha has her sights set on a bigger purpose. Soleil is a multi-dimensional, multi-platform company that will introduce the world to creatives who prior to this had little or no chance of being discovered because of the crowded spaces that exist in the world of visual media.
