April 19, 2018 | Greg Suess (JD/MBA ’96) has exited the management company he co-founded in 2004 to form Activist Artists Management. The new company will oversee a roster of top recording artists, actors, writers, industry icons, brands, and high net worth family offices. Suess will advise clients at Activist across a wide range of transactions, content strategies, seed and growth capital, strategic alliances, joint venture agreements, licensing agreements, mergers and acquisitions, dispositions, and marketing and distribution agreements. He will also continue to advise Activist’s clients in their non-profit endeavors.
Suess told us, “Activist’s mission of making a positive impact in the world universally aligns with Pepperdine’s values of purpose, service and leadership.”
