“Steven has been a tremendous asset and confidant these last four years” said Larry Mestel, CEO of Primary Wave Music, in announcing the promotion. “His tremendous relationship base makes him a perfect choice to lead our music talent business. No one is more commited to our success in the talent business than Steven.”
