Ted Chung

Gram By Gram, MerryJane, Cashmere Agency

Ted Chung is a music industry institution. Since 1999, he has judiciously helmed Snoop’s creative and prolific career. Chung has also successfully launched profitable media companies, marketing agencies, and entertainment ventures. All along the way, he has exhibited a flair for street-level grassroots marketing. “I started out DJ’ing and producing music in high school, which led me to the business side: I began meeting guys who represented and promoted music to DJs, and they introduced me to the world of street-team marketing,” Chung recently told “Billboard Magazine.”A native of Palos Verdes, California, Chung is the son of Korean immigrants and graduated from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania with a specialization in Entertainment Marketing. He and his cousin Seung Chung co-founded the Cashmere Agency in a borrowed one-room office in 1998. Soon after, he started Stampede Management with Snoop as his longtime client.
