About Andy Kushner

After graduating from Boston University, Magna Cum Laude with a BS/BA in Business Management, Andy Kushner embarked on his first corporate career. How does an IBM Sales Rep and Lexmark’s “National Account Manager of the Year” make an atmospheric rise in the events industry to ultimately dominate the music end of the business? As the head of Kushner Entertainment, Andy collaborated with celebrity planners and designers, including Colin Cowie, David Tutera and Sean DeFreitas to produce premium special events featuring award-winning live entertainment design, earning nearly every event industry award possible, including the coveted Top 25 Trendsetter by Modern Bride.

The intersection of Andy’s careers along with his unique ability to tell a story through the art of the interview, gave life to his podcast, The Wedding Biz, featuring business-transforming conversations with industry icons. As an added value to listeners, Andy introduced The Next Level, in which he and a guest co-host (a variety of previous iconic interviewees) tease out highlights of the weekly interviews, then deliver them to listeners as specific tactical strategies to take their businesses to a higher level.

Andy also hosts Extraordinary Ordinary People, in which he uncovers the extraordinary in ordinary people with deep, meaningful and engaging conversation.  Typical reviews include these quotes, “Riveting!” “I laughed, cried and was moved to take action in my own life,” and “Andy’s interviews and conversations are a constant source of inspiration!”

As a firsthand witness to the rise of podcasting, Andy has become a powerful proponent of tech-forward branding and marketing strategies. He recently launched The Wedding Biz Podcast Network™, the only global platform of its kind to serve the business development needs of wedding industry professionals.
