Emporium Presents announced today the expansion of their U.S. team with several new hires including Kelsey Danca as their new Director of Marketing, Megan Unruh as Director of Ticketing and Jordan Powell as the new Director of Production for the company co-founded by Dan Steinberg and Jason Zink, a joint venture with Live Nation Entertainment.
In addition, Zink has relocated to Nashville and is based out of Live Nation’s offices there, along with Danca, Unruh, and Powell. Steinberg remains at Emporium’s headquarters located in Washington.
Danca previously worked at AEG Presents in West Palm Beach, FL, Hubbard Broadcasting, RadioFX and The Chicago Theatre, and brings more than 10 years of experience in marketing to the promoter team. Unruh joins Emporium from Red Mountain Entertainment, and previously worked at C3 Presents, H-E-B Center in Cedar Park, TX, and NASCAR.
Powell has worked as a tour and artist manager for 23 years with several artists including Sugarland, Ben Rector, Jewel, Indigo Girls, Jennifer Nettles, Miranda Lambert, Thomas Rhett, Blake Shelton, Brandy Clark, Tony Joe White and more. Powell will take over leading all production for Emporium Presents.
“We are thrilled about adding these new key players to our team and the expertise that they each bring to Emporium Presents,” Steinberg said in a statement. “We are all passionate about the events that we do and Danca, Unruh and Powell are no exception to that. We look forward to all of the growth to come from having them onboard.”
Zink added, “I am excited to have moved back to Nashville as Music City is a great place to be based. We have always worked with artists, agents, and managers that are based in Nashville and this move will only strengthen those relationships and the foothold we have.”
Emporium Presents was co-founded by Steinberg and Zink in 2015 after successfully co-promoting major acts like Dierks Bentley and The Black Keys, among many other shows. Emporium Presents merged Steinberg’s Square Peg, previously known as Dan Steinberg Presents, with Jason Zink’s Sherpa Concerts.
The company promotes over 400 shows annually across a variety of entertainment offerings including concerts, stand-up comedy, and performances by celebrated TV personalities, and has offices in Washington and Nashville.
To date, Emporium Presents has promoted thousands of shows for renowned acts like Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Dolly Parton, Jason Mraz, The Scorpions, and The Trailer Park Boys. Upcoming shows from Emporium Presents include Billy Strings, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Tommy Emmanuel, The Avett Brothers, Straight No Chaser, Parker McCollum, Home Free, Wardruna, Bruce Dickinson, Kaleo, Dream Theater and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood Live.
