In addition to core booking representation, Mint is reimagining the agency marketing department, handling voice-over, TV and film opportunities and will offer access to a premier fan club ticketing platform. Mint has already established agency-wide partnerships with numerous brand executives and corporate buyers plus  sports department led by Strock.

“The goal of Mint is to bring together great agents with amazing rosters so that both can thrive at a home that values the associate, agent and artist like family,” McAuliff said. “The wealth of experience the Mint team brings to the group gives us the clout of a corporate without the limitations or boundaries.”

Allen, Wiederlight and Handelsman will launch the electronic division; Wiederlight is also the head of festival booking. Owens will oversee the casino booking department. Mint will feature an associate training program.
