WASSERMAN FORMS DC MUSIC

Brings Dave Holmes, Estelle Wilkinson Aboard From Nettwerk Management
Casey Wasserman’s Media Group has officially announced its partnership with manager Dave Holmes, to form a music management division, DC Music. Holmes will be the president of DC Music, responsible for day-to-day talent representation as well as bringing in new acts. He will also develop new business, including merchandising, events and cross-marketing. He spent the previous 10 years at Nettwerk Management. DC Music will handle Coldplay (Capitol), Rancid (Hellcat/Warner Bros.) and Eisley (Warner Bros.). Joining Holmes will be Estelle Wilkinson, who was Holmes’ U.K. counterpart at Nettwerk.

Said Wasserman Media Group Chairman/CEO Wasserman: “Dave represents that rare executive revered by both artists and the industry and we are privileged to welcome him and his marquee talent to WMG as we extend our reach into music management. After completing a calculated search for an ideal partner, I look forward to capitalizing on both our existing competencies and the music industry’s evolution. And I can’t wait for him to tell me if Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow got hitched.”

Added Holmes: “Although I will miss my colleagues and mentors at Nettwerk, Casey has offered a platform for me to build a multi-faceted, artist oriented company with a significant creative stake. I am honored to join Casey as his industry heritage, history with talent, and proven track record will help grow DC Music into a new and exceptional home for artists to thrive. Hopefully, I can get some choice seats at Arena Football games.”

Wasserman’s other businesses include naming rights and corporate consulting company Envision, the Arena Football League's Los Angeles Avengers, and the Familie, which specializes in youth marketing and athlete management for action sports such as such as BMX rider Dave Mirra, freestyle motocrosser Travis Pastrana and skateboarders Bucky Lasek and Bob Burnquist.
