Respected business manager and accountant Gary Haber died April 7, 2014 at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. He was 68.
His superstar client list has included Carrie Underwood, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Julianne Hough, Peter Frampton, Joe Cocker, screenwriter Les Bohem, and numerous others. The Haber Corporation was established in Encino, Calif., in 1977.
His Nashville branch was opened in 1990. Haber was an active member of the music industry on both coasts. The company expanded again in 2000 to better respond to the global market by joining forces with Mark Robertson to open Loire Valley-based Haber & Robertson International, LLC.
He served on the boards of directors for Alliance of Artists and Recording Companies, ACM, and ACM Lifting Lives, where he was a past president. An advocate for uniting the worlds of music, film and TV across the country, he was a founder and president of the Nashville Screenwriters Conference.
With a reach beyond entertainment, Haber also worked as CFO of the Professional Baseball Scouts Foundation, and was part-owner and CFO of Nashville hot spot Music City Tippler.
He was a strong supporter of the charitable endeavors of MusiCares and the TJ Martell Foundation, and was a longtime member of CMA, NARAS and American Institute of CPAs. Haber was a graduate of Long Island University.
His company, The Haber Corporation, also has a Paris office.
