Rob Light
United States



Managing Partner / Worldwide Chief / Head, Music Department

Guiding more than 115 agents and executives while overseeing a music department that generates upwards of $3 billion annually, Rob Light’s experience when it comes to touring is unparalleled. Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac, Katy Perry, Bette Midler, and One Direction represent just a fraction of the artists currently on CAA’s roster, many of whom have been with Light almost as long as they’ve been professional entertainers.

In a similar vein, Light has been with CAA for nearly as long as the agency has existed, joining in 1984 from ICM, where he spent six formative years navigating the trade.

Since his appointment to CAA’s management board in 2001, Light has led the firm’s expansion into top music markets like London and Miami, building an international powerhouse covering all genres, from country to rock, pop to EDM, and beyond. In addition, he has fostered cross-departmental cooperation between departments, bringing to music clients opportunities for endorsements, film and TV roles, soundtrack inclusion, and fashion and apparel lines.
