United Talent Agency (UTA) has hired Vanja Primorac, formerly an artist marketing representative at Spotify, in the newly created role of executive for music innovations.
Based in the agency’s Los Angeles head office, Primorac is tasked with identifying and securing marketing, distribution and platform partnerships to ensure UTA’s roster “are on the cutting edge of a constantly evolving music landscape”, says the company.
“The music industry continues to be a hotbed for innovation and disruption, with new platforms and business models continually redefining the landscape,” says UTA’s chief innovation officer, Brent Weinstein. “We are excited to utilise Vanja’s experience and entrepreneurial spirit to help our clients navigate this ever-changing world, and to unlock new creative and business opportunities.”

At Spotify, Primorac worked with managers and labels on marketing campaigns for artists including Mumford & Sons, Calvin Harris, J. Cole, Mike Posner and AlunaGeorge.
Prior to joining the streaming company, she worked with Sean Combs to launch the rapper formerly known as Puff Daddy/Diddy/Brother Love’s Revolt TV platform.
