NEW YORK OFFICE TO BE
HEADED BY INDUSTRY VETERAN
Leading Midwest promoter Mammoth, Inc. is expanding their footprint by opening a New York City branch and launching Mammoth Northeast. The New York office (in the city’s historic South Street Seaport area) will be headed by industry veteran Sean Striegel.
With more than three decades of experience as one of the nation’s leading talent buyers, Striegel brings his expertise in concert buying and event production to Mammoth, establishing an east coast presence for various live events ranging from clubs and arenas to national tours.
“The Mammoth team has worked hard at creating a forward-thinking, artist friendly business that serves the customer,” Sean Striegel says. “Adding my decades of experience in the live music industry to what Mammoth has built is a natural fit. Combining all of our knowledge and perspective will amplify the great service that artists, agents, managers, venues, and fans have come to expect of Mammoth.”
“We’ve had a long working relationship with Sean that’s developed into a close friendship,” says Mammoth’s Jeff Fortier. “His renowned booking abilities are a huge asset and addition to Mammoth’s capabilities. We’re very excited to have him as part of the growing team.”
Mammoth’s Josh Hunt notes, “Growth is organically happening within Mammoth, when the opportunity to include Sean on the east coast presented itself, it just made sense. We can’t think of anyone better suited to take on the responsibility of opening and running a Mammoth Northeast office.”
This news comes on the heels of the announcement of Mammoth’s expansion into the Pacific Northwest as a result of their recently announced establishment of Mammoth Northwest, a merger with Portland, Oregon’s Mike Thrasher Presents. Read more here.
Launched in 2006, Mammoth produces a wide array of live events including concerts and festivals, as well as national tours. Mammoth’s events range in size from small club shows to amphitheaters and arena shows (including more than 50 historic indoor theaters). The company is headed by Jeff Fortier and Josh Hunt, who together have over 55 years of combined music industry experience. With home offices in Lawrence, KS and Kansas City, MO, Mammoth produces more than 1,000 concerts and live events across the country per year, and those numbers sure to grow with the addition of Mammoth Northeast and Sean Striegel.
