Industry vet Jim Lenz has joined The Kirby Organization after 22 years as an agent at Paradise Artists.
Joining him in the move are The Winery Dogs, Cinderella’s Tom Keifer, Richie Kotzen, Mr. Big, Paul Gilbert, Ides Of March featuring Jim Peterik, Jefferson Starship, and more.
“In the early days of TKO I was fortunate enough to get to know the late Dave Kirby, founder and namesake of The Kirby Organization, who to me was an impressive visionary,” Lenz said. “I am looking forward to continuing the agency’s worldwide touring model with promoters, theatres, fairs, festivals and special events, as well as developing a corporate entertainment division around their artist roster.”
“We are very excited that Jim is joining TKO,” TKO President Andrew Goodfriend said. “Not only is he a great person, but his experience and talent speaks for itself – people with his vision aren’t easy to find in this business, and it’s an honor to see him become part of our family.”
