Currently at the helm of a growing multimedia marketing company as President and CEO of ELEVEN28 ENTERTAINMENT, June Archer got his first exposure to the industry on the music scene behind the microphone. He soon realized that his dream would soon become a reality by successfully impacting the industry behind the scenes.
June’s name first emerged on the music scene in 1995 as a member of the Elektra Records recording group Room Service. The group achieved radio and video success with the singles “Ain’t Nothing Wrong” and “Stay”, but he realized it was the business that drove him. Shortly after the group disbanded in 2000, June reconnected with executives and mentors who previously
guided him while in the group and he gained insight into the business of music. These experiences solidified June’s conviction that having an undeniable impact on the entertainment industry was his calling.
What does your day to day work entail as President and CEO of ELEVEN28 ENTERTAINMENT?
June: As President & CEO my days look different as I wear several hats. Depending on what the week brings I can find myself producing content for my show on Thisis50 called “The Winner’s Circle”. Recording vocals for the documentary I am producing called “Stepping Into The Shade”, setting up marketing plans for my artist Monifah or speaking to my class of future executives at my June Archer School of Arts program.
What impact do you want to make through your company?
June: Our goal is to inspire and motivate as many as we can to walk in their dopeness to be the best version of themselves at all times.
What sparked your passion to be a HIV/AIDS and Cancer advocate?
June: My Grandmother battled breast cancer and I was disturbed to learn from a really amazing poster that babies can contract AIDS from their mother’s breast milk. Blown away by how both of these things touched my spirit, I set out to bring intervention and prevention to my community to build awareness.
Please tell us about “June Archer Day” and “Hot Chocolate Soul Day”?
June: Both of these days were in my opinion earned from all the work I have done to uplift my community, my community of creatives, and entertaining my community with great performances and environments.
What does the rest of 2022 look like for you?
June: The work continues with filming the documentary, celebrating Women with “Women Leading Industry” celebrity brunch, the “100 Women of Color” Gala & Awards, The “100 men of Color” Black Tie Gala & Awards, doing interviews that will inspire as many as we can and scaling The June Archer School of Arts fro our young people who are looking for a system that will reimagine education to fit their dreams and aspirations.
