Flores becomes president of Miami for Live Nation's US concerts division, while Jacobsen steps up to COO of Florida and president of Tampa/Orlando
By IQ on 17 Dec 2018
Live Nation has promoted Brittany Flores and Neil Jacobsen to president of Miami, US concerts, and president of Tampa/Orlando, US concerts, respectively.
Flores joined Live Nation in 2012, reporting to Jacobsen and booking across Live Nation’s venues in Florida. In 2017, she expanded her responsibilities, playing a key role in opening the new Daily’s Place (5,500-cap.) venue in Jacksonville.
Jacobsen has been with Live Nation and its predecessors for over four decades. In his new role he will run the company’s concert business in Tampa, St Petersburg, Orlando and the Florida panhandle.
“With Brittany and Neil at the helm, we are positioned to maximise the opportunities across this key region”
In a newly created position, he will also assume the role of chief operating officer of Florida.
Both will report to Bob Roux, Live Nation’s president of US concerts. Both are currently based in Live Nation’s Boca Raton office, where they can be reached until the two new Live Nation offices open in Miami and Tampa/St Petersburg next year.
“As the market leader, we’ve seen incredible growth in Florida over the past several years,” says Roux. “With Brittany and Neil at the helm, we are positioned to maximise the opportunities across this key region and bring more live music to Florida than ever before.”
