Lee Anne Callahan-Longo, formerly EVP and GM of Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment, is to join Live Nation’s artist management outfit Maverick.

At Parkwood, Callahan-Longo – who has more than 25 years’ experience in the music industry, including in artist management, radio promotion/marketing and production – oversaw three world tours, Beyoncé’s 2013 Super Bowl performance and all single and album releases, including the self-titled Beyoncé visual album. She parted ways with Beyoncé in early 2016.

“We are thrilled to have Lee Anne join Maverick,” says company principal Guy Oseary, who formed the current incarnation of Maverick in 2014 as a joint venture with Live Nation. “Her commitment to clients and ability to create next-level artist experiences and business opportunities makes her the perfect fit for our team.”

“Lee Anne has been a force in the industry for many years, and her innovative projects have caught our attention time and time again,” adds Gee Roberson, Maverick partner. “Her vision and work ethic meld perfectly with the Maverick team, and I’m excited to see what we accomplish together.”
