Booking agency United Talent has head hunted David Zedeck from live giant Live Nation to become its Global Head Of Music, as well as a partner and special advisor to the board. UTA says that Zedeck will be based out of its LA office and will “oversee the company’s rapidly expanding worldwide music business”.

Zedeck had been at Live Nation since 2012, but prior to that worked at another major talent agency, CAA. He will report into UTA CEO Jeremy Zimmer in his new job, and will also work alongside Neil Warnock, who was put in charge of UTA’s music division after it bought his company The Agency Group in 2015 and who, the company says, “continues in an important leadership role within the music division”.

Confirming the new hire, Zimmer said: “We are excited to have a professional of David’s standing lead our team of great agents and executives. His vision of full-service representation meshes exactly with where we have been taking the department. His track record of developing artists, his passion for music, and his understanding of how to use all the resources of an agency make David the perfect leader for our future”.

Zedeck himself added: “Joining UTA during a period when its music business is accelerating is an amazing opportunity. UTA has a commitment to developing artists and helping them create platforms to share their music with fans around the world. Throughout my career I have been dedicated to working with artists to grow their global audience, so I’m very excited to return to the agency business to lead UTA’s music group”.
