Tony Gervino | Editor-in-Chief, Billboard Magazine
For every day of the two years that she reported to me, Tari Ayala was the most vital person on the Billboard staff. Her ability to prioritize workflow while juggling multiple projects, to track budgets, coordinate shipping schedules, and keep the staff working hard, was the single reason that we were able to accomplish so much in two years. Tari’s tireless dedication to her craft, and her willingness to teach others, coupled with her otherworldly adherence to process separates her from anyone I’ve ever managed. If there’s something she can’t accomplish, I’ve yet to discover it.
