Live Nation has hired Jason Miller as senior vice president of talent in Asia.
Miller spent over a decade at Creative Artists Agency, serving primarily as a music agent, with an emphasis on the international market.
Since leaving CAA, he has executive produced high-profile live events both in the US and abroad. In 2012 Miller earned a Global Executive MBA from UCLA Anderson School of Management and National University of Singapore.
As SVP of talent in Asia, Miller will be responsible for leading talent buying across all of Live Nation’s Asian markets, including China, South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore.
He will work with Live Nation’s Hong Kong-based director of Asia touring, Tumppi Haaranen, and Live Nation’s talent buyers in each market to grow the volume of tours across the region.
Miller will be based in Live Nation’s Beverly Hills office.
Alan Ridgeway, Live Nation President of International and Emerging Markets, said: “I am thrilled to welcome Jason to Live Nation to take up this new role that will focus on growing our show volumes in Asia.
"Since our entry into Korea and Japan last year, we have seen increasing interest in Asia from Western artists, and at the same time there has been growing demand for international shows across the region, especially in China and Indonesia. Jason’s rare combination of artist relationships and knowledge of Asian markets, will allow us to take full advantage of these opportunities.”
