AEG Presents announced the addition of Kelly Stelbasky as Senior Vice President, Global Touring, on Monday.
Stelbasky joins AEG from Live Nation, where she booked and operated stadium, arena and amphitheater tours in North America as Vice President, U.S. Concerts.
“The significant worldwide growth and expansion of AEG Presents these past few years has created the need for additional seasoned executives like Kelly,” Gary Gersh, AEG Presents President of Global Touring and Talent, said in a statement. “There is no person more suited to step into this position and nobody more qualified to help us build our artist development strategy and global touring plans for our artists.”
Stelbasky joins AEG after spending nearly a decade at Live Nation. Prior to her time at Live Nation, Stelbasky worked at Paradigm Talent Agency for five years; prior to that, she did a brief stint at William Morris Agency.
In 2018, Stelbasky received the Chip Hooper Award at the Billboard Live Music Awards.
“I’m thrilled to join Gary and the world-class team at AEG Presents, and I can’t wait to be a part of all the exciting things that are happening at the company,” Stelbasky said in a statement.
Stelbasky will work out of AEG Presents’ Los Angeles headquarters.
