R.J. Romeo Promoted To President, Romeo Entertainment Group

Talent buying agency Romeo Entertainment Group has announced a round of promotions. R.J. Romeo has been promoted to President, while Michelle Romeo has been promoted to Vice President and Harlan Burggraaf has been promoted to Controller/Director of Operations.

Bob Romeo will remain with the company as Chairman of the Board. Fran Romeo recently left the company to pursue other interests.

The company celebrates its 65th anniversary this year, and represents 120 annual multi-day events in 36 states. In 2019, REG produced nearly 500 concerts throughout the United States and Canada.

In 2014, REG won the IEBA Industry Achievement Award. Last year, R.J. Romeo was honored with the “Don Romeo” ACM Talent Buyer of the Year Award and the IEBA Fair Buyer of the Year Award.

“Fran was an integral part of leading Romeo Entertainment Group over the last 20 years,” said Michelle Romeo. “She did so much for us as a company as well as for our team. We wish her nothing but the best on her next endeavor.”

“I am grateful for the solid foundation that Don, Bob, and Fran have created for REG over their decades of leadership,” said R.J. Romeo. “I am honored and excited to implement our vision and lead REG into the future and with the help of the leadership team, continue to grow REG’s roster of amazing events. Celebrating 65 years is an indescribable feeling of pride. For an independent, family-owned company to survive and thrive for three generations is a testament to the integrity driven and relationship based business we have built.”

“I’m so thrilled to be a part of the 65th anniversary of Romeo Entertainment Group!” said Michelle Romeo. “R.J. and I look forward to carrying our legacy into the third generation and are so grateful to be surrounded by such an amazing team who we consider to be our extended family.”

“I’m so appreciative that my father was able to pass the business on to me and 25 years later as the company celebrates 65 years, I’m able to pass it on to my son and daughter,” said Bob Romeo. “I’m looking forward to mentoring R.J. and Michelle and supporting their vision in bringing Romeo Entertainment into the future.”

REG is headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, while leadership operates out of the company’s Nashville office.
