Clear Channel Music Group Elevates Brian Murphy And Nick Masters To Chairman, President Of Avalon Attractions
Clear Channel Music Group (CCMG) has raised Avalon Attractions Founder and President Brian Murphy to the newly created position of chairman/CEO. CCMG has also boosted 14-year Avalon veteran Nick Masters, previously the senior vice president of booking, to the company's presidency. Avalon Attractions is the leading music promoter in the nation's most competitive market.
"Brian Murphy knows the Southern California music market better than almost anyone with a pulse, and his experience, wide network of strong relationships and reputation for creative thinking will help us expand Avalon's scope in crucial growth areas," said Michael Rapino, CEO of CCMG. "Nick Masters has proven that he is one of the best-respected and most imaginative talent bookers around, so he is well qualified to take some decisive steps forward at Avalon's operations/booking."
While continuing to maintain his close relationships with agents and managers of hundreds of top musical acts, Murphy -- who has been with Avalon since he founded it, 28 years ago -- will shift much of his focus to Avalon's overall strategy and business development in Greater Los Angeles. Masters will take responsibility for Avalon Attractions' day-to-day operations, including talent booking, marketing and related functions. Masters will continue to report directly to Murphy, who will report directly to CCMG CEO Michael Rapino.
