AEG Presents Names Kelly Stelbasky Senior Vice President, Global Touring and Talent
Los Angeles, CA (November 25, 2019) – AEG Presents, a global leader in concert promotion and artist development, announced today that Kelly Stelbasky is joining the company as Senior Vice President, Global Touring. The announcement came from AEG Presents President of Global Touring and Talent Gary Gersh.
“The significant worldwide growth and expansion of AEG Presents these past few years has created the need for additional seasoned executives like Kelly,” said Gersh. “There is no person more suited to step into this position and nobody more qualified to help us build our artist development strategy and global touring plans for our artists.”
Stelbasky joins AEG Presents after working as Vice President, U.S. Concerts for Live Nation, where she booked and operated stadium, arena, and amphitheater concert tours in North America. In addition, she developed and managed relationships with high profile clients such as Zac Brown Band, John Mayer, Dead & Company, twenty one pilots, Kings Of Leon, Lizzo and FINNEAS, among others. She also built and lead strategic relationships with key internal and external partners to support client objectives, increase client retention, and establish the foundation for future projects while completing her MBA studies. In 2016, she received her MBA from UCLA’s Anderson School of Management, focusing on strategy and data analytics.
“I’m thrilled to join Gary and the world-class team at AEG Presents, and I can’t wait to be a part of all the exciting things that are happening at the company,” commented Stelbasky.
In 2018 the Billboard Live Music Awards honored Kelly with the Chip Hooper Award, an award for a young rising star working as an executive in artist representation, management, or concert promotion. This award was especially meaningful to Kelly because prior to joining Live Nation in 2010, she worked alongside Chip, the Worldwide Head of Music, at Paradigm Talent Agency.
Stelbasky will be based in AEG Presents’ Los Angeles headquarters.
