Big Loud Management announced today (Jan. 14) the appointment of executive heavyweight Greg Thompson to President and Partner, effective immediately.
“I’ve worked closely with Big Loud in the past, and have been able to see what an incredible organization they have built,” says Thompson. “I want to thank Seth [England], Joey [Moi], and Craig [Wiseman], for this amazing opportunity to join the family. I’m thrilled to lead a group of world-class managers and have the privilege to be on the same team as some of the greatest artists in the world.”
Coming from Maverick Management/Live Nation in Beverly Hills, California, Thompson served as President of the top-tier management conglomerate. Hands-on in helping synergize managers and superstar talent like U2, Madonna, Doja Cat, Brandy, and more, he led the charge in expanding their sought-after all-genre roster. Prior, Thompson held a long bicoastal tenure with Capitol Music Group/EMI, playing a critical role in developing artists Katy Perry, Sam Smith, and Coldplay. With over 25 years of high-level music executive experience, his early career stints include Island Def Jam, Elektra Records, and Chrysalis Records.
“It’s hard to imagine how things could get better at Big Loud right now, but adding Greg [Thompson] to our company is exactly that. He is a leader, mentor, and first-class executive. We are very thankful to him for coming on board when he could have chosen just about anywhere. He will be key in overseeing all of our managers and assisting with each of their respective artists, not to mention being a key resource for us partners as well,” says Big Loud Partners (Seth England, Joey Moi, and Craig Wiseman)
Expanding Big Loud’s footprint to Los Angeles, California, Thompson will continue managing clients Philmon Lee and Ananya Birla, while further elevating the leading Nashville, Tennessee-based independent management firm.
