He also headed Capitol Records during the 1990s and founded G.A.S. Entertainment with Foo Fighters/Beck manager John Silva in 1999.

AEG Presents CEO Jay Marciano said in a statement that Gersh’s “extensive background as an accomplished label president, artist manager and touring executive made him the obvious choice to spearhead the expansion of our touring division. His plan to centralize tour operations to more closely align with our growing international network of touring producers will further establish AEG as a leader in global touring.”

The company also announced that several execs will move into the new global touring division, including marketing VP Nicole Neal and talent buyer Jonny Shuman.
