The Hollywood Reporter has named its list of top 25 business managers for 2015. Retaining their ranking again this year are Nashville business managers Mary Ann McCready (Flood Bumstead McCready & McCarthy), and Lou Taylor (Tri Star Sports and Entertainment), as well as Los Angeles business manager Todd Gelfand (Gelfand Rennert & Feldman).

“Meet the most trusted moneymen and women (who manage assets and help make smart investments) in Hollywood on THR‘s list of those protecting the future,” prefaces the industry magazine.

Taylor’s company was launched more than 23 years ago and now includes 55 staffers and 15 business managers servicing Steven Tyler, Florida Georgia Line, Big and Rich, Casey James, Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani and many more. Taylor was among MusicRow‘s 2015 Rising Women on the Row honorees.

McCready co-founded her firm in 1990 with Churck Flood and Frank Bumstead. Now, the firm services Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton (with Julie Boos), Rascal Flatts and many more. McCready was special guest at MusicRow‘s 2013 Rising Women on the Row ceremony.

Founded by Gelfand’s father, Marshall, in 1967, Gelfand Rennert & Feldman has more than 300 employees and a Nashville office when the Haber Corporation was renamed after the 2014 death of Gary Haber. Rick Fisher manages the Nashville post with clients including Carrie Underwood, Mike Fisher, and Peter Frampton.
