Immortal Entertainment has made Carl Stubner a new company partner and appointed him president of the music management division. Joining Stubner will be managers Cory Wagner and Rick Canny, as well as assistant Blaine Clausin.
Stubner brings such artists as Fleetwood Mac and founder Mick Fleetwood, the Cult, Everlast, Tommy Lee, Human Lab, Flying Tigers and producer Alonzo Jackson into the fold.
Stubner will be working closely with Janet Billig, who has guided the careers of such artists as the Smashing Pumpkins, Hole, Primus, the Breeders, the Lemonheads, Hole, Dinosaur Jr. and Nirvana.
“Carl not only brings to Immortal the perfect blend of experience and creative vision, he also has a keen ability to nurture and develop talent,” said David Codikow, president and COO of Immortal.
“We have long sought to complement our other talent management activities, as well as our record, soundtrack and live events divisions, through a separate music management division,” he said.
“This is a natural marriage which will benefit everyone,” added Stubner.
Prior to joining Immortal, Stubner founded his own management company, Deluxe Entertainment, a full-service management firm that was merged into Eagle Cove Entertainment in 1999. Stubner also owned and oversaw the soundtrack production department, responsible for producing soundtracks for such features as “Dr. Dolittle II,” “Tomcats,” “Big Momma’s House,” “Next Friday,” “The Whole Nine Yards” and “Detroit Rock City.”
