Artist manager Jon Leshay has joined the Firm, bringing with him such clients as Mandy Moore and Switchfoot. Leshay's Storefront Entertainment will be folded into the Firm. Leshay and his staff will relocate to the Firm's Beverly Hills, Calif.-offices.

"I've known Jon for years and have always admired his hard work in promotion and marketing. I have also been thoroughly impressed by Jon's tenaciousness and persistence in championing his artists when others counted them out," Firm founder and CEO Jeff Kwatinetz says in a statement.

Prior to bowing Storefront in 1998, Leshay worked for a number of labels, including most recently Warner Bros., where he served as senior VP of marketing. He has also worked at Columbia and Elektra.
