Major LN Moves

Live Nation announced two major appointments in rapid succession as April turned to May.

Chris Adelmann was named executive VP of business development for North American Music April 28th.

That was followed by an announcement that Debbie Eybers is the new president of House of Blues.

Adelmann worked with Live Nation as a consultant, analyzing the House of Blues brand, and is a former employee of Hard Rock Café and Loews Cineplex theatre.

Adelmann will report directly to CEO of North American Music Jason Garner. Eybers was CEO of Cheeseburger in Paradise, founding the Jimmy Buffett restaurant and expanding it to 32 locations.

The House of Blues chain was without a president, with COO Jim Jablonski overseeing operations.
