Sebastian Carlomagno, partner and managing director of Move Concerts Argentina, has been appointed chief operating officer of the Move Concerts group.
Carlomagno is a veteran of the Argentine live music industry, having served as regional commercial director of Ocesa/CIE Group from 2000, and then, as president and regional director, playing an instrumental role in the Argentine launch of Time for Fun (T4F) in 2007. He has led Move Concerts Argentina since 2014.
Phil Rodríguez, founder and managing director of Miami-headquartered Move, comments: “Sebastian has done an incredible job with our office and operations in Argentina in the three years since we opened there. Furthermore, he has made it a point to become well acquainted with all our other offices and personnel in the region, and has been instrumental in securing yearly sponsorship platforms in Peru and Puerto Rico.
“With the growth of Move Concerts, it became evident that we needed a chief operating officer familiar with all aspects of this business and cognisant of the direction in which the company was moving, as well as the opportunities therein. Sebastian is that person.”
“My objective now is to strengthen the company’s growth in the region”
In preparation for his new role, Carlomagno – who will for now remain based in Buenos Aires – has brought in Marcela Pinelli as COO of Move Concerts Argentina to assist with day-to-day operations.
“The values that Move Concerts has in its DNA, creativity, professionalism, experience and transparency, embodied in Phil Rodríguez for over 40 years as a promoter in Latin America, make it possible to quickly accomplish a new project in any country,” comments Carlomagno.
“Sustained by the professional and personal support from each Move office in the region, conscious of the company’s standing and aware of the strategic plan that has been developed, my objective now is to strengthen the company’s growth in the region. I appreciate the confidence that Phil and the directors of each country have in me as I take on this important task and new position.”
In addition its regional headquarters in the US, Move Concerts has offices in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Peru and Puerto Rico.
