As one of the elite rainmakers in the business of live entertainment, Geiger leads the agency's 85-plus agents across five offices, which booked more than 33,000 dates in 2014 (up from 29,000 in 2013). Among the WME clients who lit up Billboard Boxscore in 2014 were Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars and John Legend. WME says it has the largest market share of any agency in the EDM space, with clients Afrojack, Steve Aoki and deadmau5, and in country the agency is tending the touring careers of Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean, Eric Church and others.

MEMORABLE ARTIST ENCOUNTER: "A dinner with David Bowie, David Byrne and Black Francis during the Pixies reunion in New York. The first time I met Prince at Paisley Park wasn't too shabby, either."
