Columbia Artists has undertaken the largest corporate restructuring since its foundation in 1930. Reflecting today’s ever-changing performing arts landscape, the company is now split into four key business groups: Classical Music, Performing Arts Touring and Events, Opera Vocal, and Theatricals. This replaces its former multidisciplinary model, which saw different parts of the company competing against one another.
It has also named veteran artist manager R Douglas Sheldon – who has represented many of the world’s most famous orchestras – as its board chair.
This new internal structure merges the iconic firm’s founding principles of creativity, innovation, integrity, and passion for excellence with its new team-oriented and collaboration-first business practices," stated in the press release published on April 23, 2018, by Columbia Artists.
