Nashville based Christian music artist management company Proper Management has expanded its services to include a marketing division to be lead by Bryan Ward.
Before joining Proper Management, Ward served as VP of Marketing at Provident/Sony overseeing Marketing, Radio, Digital Marketing, and Publicity. Prior to Provident, Ward served 16 years at Capitol Christian Music Group (formerly EMI CMG) in artist development, marketing, product marketing, sales and distribution. Over his 20-plus years in the industry, Ward has built branding and marketing strategies for Hillsong United, Hillsong Live, Mandisa, Amy Grant, Steven Curtis Chapman, Third Day, RED, WOW Hits, The Story, Rhett Walker Band, and others.
“Launching this marketing division is in direct response to the needs of the marketplace. As our industry is quickly changing, we wanted to adapt our structure,” said Proper Management’s Mike Jay. “However, Proper Management will always be firmly grounded and committed to our rich history, experience, and passion for artist management and producing quality tours.”
“Over the past few years, Proper Management has been approached by multiple clients looking for marketing services outside the scope of traditional artist management responsibilities. At the time we simply didn’t have the capacity or internal structure to adequately serve these needs,” said Proper Management’s Nick Barre. “However, when Bryan Ward was available to work with us, it was quickly apparent that he would be the perfect person to drive this area of growth for our company.”
Proper Management’s artist roster includes Casting Crowns, The Afters, Anthem Lights, City Harbor, and Selah, among other artists.
