Boutique agencies Billions Corporation and Aero Booking are merging effective June 1st, the companies announced March 25th. Primary offices will be located in Chicago and Seattle, where Billions and Aero are respectively based.
However, Aero’s Seattle staff will move into a new Billions office in that city in May, while continuing to do business as a separate entity until June.
The merger brings two impressive rosters together under the Billions name, which the new company will retain. Exclusive artists include Billions’ The Arcade Fire, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Sufjan Stevens, Vampire Weekend, Neko Case, Silversun Pickups and The Swell Season and Aero’s Death Cab For Cutie, The Postal Service, David Bazan, Midlake, Beach House, Bodies of Water and Bowerbirds.
"We are positively thrilled to welcome Trey [Many, founder of Aero] and Andrew [Morgan] to our family," Billions founder and president David Viecelli said in a statement. "I’m proud that he has recognized a similar approach and creative energy in our company and chosen to join us. We are all the better for it."
Neither Viecelli nor Many were immediately available for comment at press time and financial details of the merger were not released.
