Managing Partner / Worldwide Chief / Head, Music Department

Beyond overseeing CAA’s 135 music agents in the advising of their clients, Light has led the venerable agency’s huge expansions into EDM, urban music, comedy, authors and podcast touring. His team was behind multiple top tours of 2018 and 2019 — including Lady Gaga’s Las Vegas residency along with Beyonce, KISS, Ariana Grande and Twenty One Pilots, with Harry Styles on deck for 2020. CAA also continues to break new acts — think Dua Lipa, Luke Combs, Jorja Smith and Maggie Rogers. Besides growing the leadership team, the 35-year CAA vet implemented an integrated-services model to leverage resources across the agency for endorsements, film and TV roles and fashion lines. Light is on multiple boards, including MusiCares and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
