Q Prime’s Fielding Logan and This Is Management’s Jon Grau will join the National Independent Talent Organization’s Board of Directors.
NITO, formed during the early days of the pandemic to represent independent booking agents and managers, held its first open elections to its board.
“All of us at NITO are pleased to welcome the two additional managers to our Board of Directors, Jon Grau and Fielding Logan,” NITO President Frank Riley of High Road Touring said. “Fielding brings a wealth of perspective from a long career working with major artists at a well-established management company. Jon brings his own experience, too, developing new artists and all of the issues associated with it.”
Tom Chauncey (Partisan Arts), Eric Dimenstein (Ground Control Touring), Wayne Forte (Entourage Talent Associates), Bruce Houghton (Skyline Artists Agency), Mark Lourie (Madison House), Brad Madison (Mongrel Music) and Jack Randall (Kurland Agency) were re-elected to fill eight open At Large seats. All will serve two-year terms.
They will join current board members Paul Lohr (New Frontier Touring), Frank Riley (High Road Touring), Dave Shapiro (Sound Talent Group), Stormy Shepherd (Leave Home Booking), Steve Schenck (TKO), Ami Spishock (Fort William Management), Scott Sokol (Pinnacle) and Michel Vega (Magnus Media) on NITO’s new seventeen-member Board Of Directors. These remaining members will stand for re-election next year.
“While our initial Board of Directors was comprised of independent agents, over the past two years, we have moved to diversify and more fully include the breadth of the independent live music community. We look forward to working on relevant and impactful issues on behalf of all touring artists,” Riley said in a statement.
