Kelly Flanigan has been named president of Washington DC for Live Nation’s US concerts division.
In her expanded role, Flanigan, who joined Live Nation in 2006 as a talent buyer, will oversee booking, marketing and business operations for the company the region, including Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia.
Meanwhile, long-serving exec Wilson Howard has been promoted to chief operating officer of Washington DC/the Carolinas, US concerts, overseeing Live Nation’s development and long-term strategic planning for the region. Both will report to Bob Roux, Live Nation’s president of US concerts.
The pair’s promotion follows that of Brittany Flores and Neil Jacobsen to president of Miami and COO of Florida, respectively, earlier this week.
“Kelly has been key to Live Nation’s success in DC since joining the company over a decade ago, and her promotion to president of the DC region is very well-deserved,” says Roux. “By elevating Kelly and Wilson, we’re confident that Live Nation will continue to expand our business and our annual concerts throughout the region.”
