Nearly two years after leaving Beyonce’s Parkwood Entertainment, Lee Anne Callahan-Longo has landed at another management company to the stars: Maverick.
Guy Oseary, co-founder and CEO of Maverick Management, said in a statement that Callahan-Longo’s “commitment to clients and ability to create next-level artist experiences and business opportunities makes her the perfect fit for our team.”
Callahan-Longo worked with Beyonce for ten years, going back to Columbia Records, and served as executive vp/gm of Parkwood while overseeing complex rollouts like the artist’s 2013 surprise “visual” album, three world tours and a Super Bowl performance. She along with several other principals departed in late 2015 as part of larger shakeup at the company.
Formerly a record label co-founded by Madonna, Maverick was relaunched in 2014 with Live Nation Entertainment as an ambitious artist management collective featuring Oseary, Ron Laffitte, Caron Veazey, Gee Roberson, Cortez Bryant, Larry Rudolph, Adam Leber, Scott Rodger and Clarence Spalding. Combined, their artist roster includes Madonna, Paul McCartney, Shania Twain, U2, Nicki Minaj, Britney Spears, Jason Aldean, Miley Cyrus, Lil Wayne and Andrea Bocelli, among others.
Callahan-Longo’s official role at Maverick was not disclosed; since leaving Parkwood she has worked as a consultant on several TV and music projects, including with Solange Knowles.
“I am excited to join the team at Maverick,” Callahan-Longo said in a statement. “The team is an innovative and collaborative collective that represents some of the most talented artists in the world. Working together, we all have access to new ideas and are well poised to maximize opportunities. I’m looking forward to building my business and contributing to the collective for years to come.”
