C3 Presents, the concert promotion, event production, artist management, and winner of the Top Independent Promoter award at the 2013 Billboard Touring Awards, has brought in Anthony Aymen Saleh, who will join C3's management division as executive vice president, providing a significant boost to C3's efforts in that sector.
Anthony, who made Billboard's 2012 30 Under 30 list, currently manages Nas and the production team, Fisticuffs, comprised of Bryan Warfield and Mac Robinson, and has a technical background as an advisor to the Fancy, Rap Genius and Trendabl, with a notable portfolio of top start-up companies. He previously served as Executive Vice President and GM of Atom Factory where, with former Lady Gaga manager Troy Carter, the company represented the likes of Nicki Minaj, Gaga, Mindless Behavior, Greyson Chance, and Toni Braxton during Anthony's tenure.
“After much thought and prayer, I've decided to take my talents to C3,” Anthony says in a prepared statement. “I'm extremely excited about creating a true full-service company on the foundation the C's have built through the live concert business. I’m really looking forward to merging our relationships and joining the C3 family.”
“We welcome Anthony Saleh in to our C3 management family. His experience in managing careers and forward thinking work in the progressive tech movement will play a pivotal role in the continuous growth of our company,” adds C3 partner, Charlie Walker.
With partners Walker, Charlie Jones and Charles Attal, C3 Presents creates, books, markets and produces live experiences, concerts, events, and "just about anything that makes people stand up and cheer," according to the company bio.
