Music business students will have the opportunity for a Q&A with CMG CEO Mark Roesler, an agent for dead celebrities, on Tuesday, March 25, at 8:00 p.m. in York Performance Hall at Anderson University.
Roesler represents deceased celebrities such as James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Babe Ruth, Betty Davis, and Billie Holiday. View a 60 Minutes interview on Roesler’s company, CMG located in Indianapolis, Ind. The benefit of Roesler visiting campus is for music business students to understand that licensing deals continue to be negotiated on the artist's behalf long after their death.
“As the leading authority on the valuing, management, and marketing of dead celebrities, we are very fortunate to have Mark Roesler come and share his understanding of intellectual property and licensing with our music business students,” said Dr. Rebecca Chappell, Director of Music Business Studies.
“I believe his visit will help students explore new possibilities for licensing in niche markets.”
The session is open to the campus and community. For more information, view CMG’s corporate brochure.
