We have some exciting changes going on at Intrepid and want you to be the first to know about them. Intrepid Artists and our current Northeast agent, Brad Stewart have mutually agreed to part ways. Brad has been an important part of our organization since about this time in 2005. We have accomplished a lot together over the years and will remain friends and allies. With that being said, it is time for a change. Brad moved to Nashville, TN three years ago and things have not really been the same. Intrepid feels that in order to provide you with the best possible service then we need to keep all of our agents “in house”. This means all agents on the same page, working out of the same office under the same roof. Brad plans to try his hand at band management and is in a very good place to do that. We all wish him well and will do what we can to help him out. Hopefully we will get to work together again sometime down the road. With all of this said, Intrepid is more than prepared for this change and very excited about some new possibilities for our artists.
Kevin Hopkins, a six year veteran agent with Intrepid and a REAL Nose for the business, will be taking over all northeast territory and all of Brad’s former clients. I assure you that Kevin is extremely familiar with this territory, excited to have the opportunity to work it and will thrive in the Northeast environment. You can count on it!
As for the Southeast Territory, Intrepid Artists would like to welcome Zach McNabb to the Intrepid Family. Zach is the former promoter and talent buyer from Charlotte’s Neighborhood Theatre (1000 cap) and President of promotional company Zali Presents. The Neighborhood Theatre was always ranked in Pollstar’s Top 100 Clubs during Zach’s tenure. Zach is not only familiar with the Club Scene, but has also been involved with several festivals including Camp Bisco, The Echo Project, Am Jam and CounterPoint Music Festival. He has also promoted, worked and organized over 1200 Concerts and many music and arts festivals. He has a background in marketing, promotions, talent buying, production and show operations. For the past 10 years, he has dealt directly with almost every major agency out there and is known for his straight up, honest approach to business. Anyone that knows Zach or has dealt with him in the music industry knows that he takes care of business and is extremely accountable and sharp! Zach has been in the office at Intrepid Artists for the past month or so familiarizing himself with the way we do business around here. He is quick to learn and a pleasure to have in the office. I must say, I am thrilled to welcome someone of his caliber to our team!
We have already begun the “change over” process and should have a complete changeover in the next week or so. Both Intrepid Artists and Brad Stewart are excited about our futures and wish each other all the best! Please feel free to reach out to Brad to wish him well at email@example.com or reach out to Zach to welcome him to the team at firstname.lastname@example.org . I am sure they would both love to hear from you!
We are extremely excited about the upcoming year and already have a lot in the works. The Intrepid family is stronger than ever and we are honored to be able to work with you! It’s an honor that we do not take lightly.
Thank you for your continued support as we make this change. I don’t think it will affect the way we conduct business with you in any way, except for the fact that Everyone that works at Intrepid will now ALL be under the same roof again. We look forward to celebrating Intrepid’s 20th anniversary and another great year in 2014.
