No. 18: Guy Oseary | Power 100

18

GUY OSEARY, 44

Co-founder, Maverick Management

Last Year's Rank: 21

Maverick conquered the pop charts in 2016, with 11 of Billboard's top 100 Hot 100 songs performed by the management consortium's acts, including Nicki Minaj and G-Eazy, and recent signees The Weeknd and Fifth Harmony. Though Maverick co-founder Ron Laffitte (Pharrell Williams) left in the summer, Oseary expanded the brand's roster with big signings: Shania Twain and Andrea Bocelli (with Scott Rodger), and Darius Rucker (with Clarence Spalding). And 2017 portends another coup for the married father of four: U2's 30th-anniversary The Joshua Tree Tour moved 1.1 million tickets in its first 24 hours on sale.
