Phil Yates is working at the London office of WME, an American talent agency with an impressive (and massive) roster.
Here’s a quick alphabet of some of the clients:
Air, Burt Bacharach, Cypress Hill, Duran Duran, Eagles of Death Metal, Faith No More, Goo Goo Dolls, HAIM, Ice-T, Jet, Keane, LL Cool J, Maroon 5, N.E.R.D., Outkast, Pearl Jam, Queens of the Stone Age, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Skrillex, Toto, Underworld, Vampire Weekend, Weezer, XTRMST, Yusaf, Zero 7.
“I set up video conferences with the other offices in Beverly Hills and New York, and most day-to-day office things like visitors coming to see agents etc. I’m on track to go into music central in 4-5 months which will be doing ticket counts.
It’s such a great opportunity as we have 31,000 clients worldwide spread over TV, film, books, music, digital and commercials.”
“Working at WME is really humbling knowing that 60% of the current agents have gone through my job role. I certainly wouldn’t be at this company if it weren’t for the Tour module, as in all honesty, that was my only selling point!”
