We've officially named CeeLo Green as our Chief Creative Officer!
From The Hollywood Reporter's exclusive story:
"In this new capacity, Green will serve less as a client and more “as a true partner,” says Larry Mestel, founder and CEO of Primary Wave in a statement released on Thursday. “He is a master creator, unique visionary, charismatic entertainer, and deceptively brilliant strategist, a true quadruple threat.”
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter just prior to the announcement, Mestel explained further. “We've formed this incredible personal bond in two years, and CeeLo is very excited and participatory in our business, so we wanted to do it in a bigger way and give him a piece of the company,” he says. As for Green’s CCO duties, Mestel says they “will be very high level -- artists can plug into him for advice, he may look at artwork or write with an artist. It covers the myriad of things that he can potentially do.”
That includes the “creative planning” of Primary Wave’s annual pre-Grammy party as well as the company’s annual managers’ brunch. The experience will also “help build out his executive skills,” adds Mestel. Green is also managed by Primary Wave Music."
