Genevieve Thompson Will Lead Mick Management's New Nashville Office
Mick Management announced on Thursday (Aug. 9) that Genevieve Thompson will head the firm's newly opened Nashville office.
Thompson will collaborate with Mick founder Michael McDonald and his firm partner Jonathan Eshak. She will also be supported in Nashville by day-to-day manager Jessica Swan.
"Genevieve’s history speaks for itself and we’re thrilled to have a true Music City player on our team," says McDonald. "We represent career artists who are, first and foremost, songwriters who have toured, recorded, and often lived in Nashville. Having a talented manager on the ground who shares our passion for excellent music and has worked across genre lines makes her a perfect fit as we expand."
Following Thompson to Mick are her clients Lennon Stella and Maisy Stella, both of whom achieved acclaim for their roles in the TV show Nashville. Under her leadership, the girls have accumulated over 100 million views and 800k subscribers on their YouTube channel, performed on NBC’s Today Show, The View, ABC’s Good Morning America, the Radio Disney Awards and more.
Prior to Back 40 Entertainment, Genevieve opened the Nashville division of The Collective, and worked at Borman Entertainment assisting Keith Urban in achieving his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, helping with Michael Franti's hit "Say Hey, I Love You" and working with Lady Antebellum from pre-label signing through their 5x Platinum designation and Grammy wins with their album, Need You Now. She was also previously featured on Billboard's Top 30 Executives Under 30 list.
