Lyor Cohen met John Janick -- co-president of Elektra Records -- seven years ago when Cohen's company Warner Music Group inked a deal with Janick's music label, "Fueld By Ramen." According to Janick, Cohen offered his support, and remains a trusted advisor. Janick says that Julie Greenwald has also been a solid mentor during his career. Greenwald was president of Atlantic Records when Janick met her (she is now the chairwoman and COO). "To her credit, she's let me run the show, but has always been there to offer great advice along the way," Janick says.
