Buddy Lee Attractions has promoted Mike Meade to Vice President of the agency. Meade heads up the agency’s speaker and guest appearances division and under his direction the company has inked Pete Rose, Naomi Judd, Brooke Hogan, Sonia Leigh, and many others.
“Mike has been a contributing member of the BLA staff for almost twenty years; he’s been instrumental in the agency’s growth and become a mentor for the younger agents,” stated CEO/President of Buddy Lee Attractions Donna Lee. “His loyalty, dedication and experience are fitting for this role. As a seasoned industry veteran, he’s grown with the changes and has successfully incorporated new approaches to assist the agency in keeping current with the trends and ahead of the curve.”
Meade started with the agency as an intern in 1996 and over the course of his initial 10-year term with the company helped launch the careers of the Dixie Chicks, Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Tracy Lawrence, and more. In 2006 he joined TLE, Lawrence’s management company, then worked at New Frontier Touring representing artists like the Avett Brothers and Monty Montgomery before forming his own company, The Meade Group, in 2009. In 2012, Meade returned to Buddy Lee as an agent and spearheaded the newly-formed special appearances division.
“Buddy Lee Attractions became ‘home’ during my first internship,” said Meade. “BLA continues to embrace its ‘family’ business strategy and that alone lends itself to the successful foundation this company was built upon. BLA is historically characterized by its passion to invest in, and develop, an artist and his/her career. That’s the philosophy I cut my teeth on and I am extremely proud to be part of this organization of heart.”
