Of course, it’s one thing to be well connected. It’s another thing to turn those connections into successes for the organization you represent. That’s been the practice of Marc Whitmore throughout his professional life. Such a strategic formula now follows Marc into the role of general manager for Ovation Artist Group.
As a manager and agent for an array of popular artists over the years, Marc has trotted the globe and placed those he represented in career-extending positions. “It’s rarely without its hard knocks,” Marc admits, “but with booking and promotion, artist development, recording projects – this is really the culmination of everything I’ve done my entire life.” Not quite everything. Marc has founded record labels and has held executive positions in film distribution companies. He has designed promotional, fundraising and celebratory events that have been staged in many of the world’s top venues. And, as consultant, he helped to structure the entertainment outreach departments of several major humanitarian and nonprofit organizations resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars for their programs.
