POWER ALUMNI: Inga S. Willis

Inga S. Willis is an award-winning writer, entrepreneur, and brand developer. Working as an industry professional since the age of 17 as a songwriter and music publisher, Inga’s career began under the tutelage of Antonio “L.A” Reid at LaFace Records. With success as a Grammy Award-nominated songwriter, her clients included T.LC, N’Sync, Carlos Santana, Lauryn Hill, and Anthony Hamilton. Inga emerged from creative writer to music publisher, brand manager, international tour agent, and consultant.

“While navigating the music business and developing elite talent, I learned that every brand eventually has a problem, but the root issue is the absence of a sustainable strategy. Industries change, the real problem is when businesses and brands don’t adapt.” It was from this observation, that The Mogul Group was launched in 2004 as a strategic consulting firm. Executing in the spheres of entertainment, politics, and brand infusion, Inga has successfully brokered and launched equity initiatives in Africa, Europe, and Asia, as well as domestically. Understanding that each client has a unique thumbprint and need, TMG began solving client issues. Clients saw results in brand escalation, market territory expansion, and global strategic partnerships.

“The thing about the entertainment business as we knew it that stuck with me most was a full commitment to client development. It was a strategic process, an incubator, a molding, and a mentorship toward greatness that resulted in sustainable and iconic brands. I still employ that model on all levels.”

In 2014, Mogul Brokers partnered with Genesis Asset Management, creating a financial hub servicing entertainment clients, business owners, and corporate employees with insurance, investment and retirement options.  In 2017, The Mogul Group teamed with the BRANDPRENUER Agency to service both political and executive clients in realms of social media marketing and digital storytelling.

A riveting public speaker, Inga has toured academic and business environments, inspiring current and future business leaders to identify “the difference” within, further develop platforms of impact, and innovate existing business models.

Coupling her creative clientele with ever-changing business platforms, Inga has emerged as an innovating strategist for emerging business models, political climates, and brand infusion. Her motto is “if it doesn’t exist, we must create it, then repeat.”

An Atlanta native, HBCU advocate and proud graduate of The Howard University, Inga’s passion is rooted in service platforms, economic community initiatives and the empowerment of budding female entrepreneurs.  Inga is a recent recipient of the Pinnacle of Leadership Award,  member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, and The Links, Incorporated.
