U.K.-based Various Artists Management—whose clients include Charli xcx, The Libertines, Spiritualized, Tom Grennan and Barns Courtney—has launched a dedicated North American division.

Various Artists Management USA, which will be based in L.A., will be headed up by Matt Luxon, who’ll oversee consolidating the company’s existing relationships, creating new opportunities for the client roster and the new acts the company is developing.

Luxon (pictured) is one of Various Artists’ co-founders, along with David Bianchi and Nick Ember.

“We operate in a global marketplace and the U.S. is the biggest market in the world,” Bianchi said. “We have already achieved significant success and it makes complete sense, therefore, for us to have an operational presence there to help develop the careers and maximise opportunities for the artists we represent."
