PATTON HOUSE ENTERTAINMENT founder ANDREW PATTON has joined forces with WES CAMPBELL and DAVE WAGNER of FIRST COMPANY MANAGEMENT, effective immediately.
PATTON left PROVIDENT LABEL GROUP in 2005 to start-up PATTION HOUSE, and explains, "Over the past 9 years, I have had the great opportunity to launch careers, re-launch careers, and help some end gracefully. It’s been a wonderfully scary and rewarding past. It’s now time for a new adventure.
"WES CAMPBELL, DAVE WAGNER, and I have shared lots of life together in the past years. From my time as GM at INPOP when NEWSBOYS were just relaunching with MICHAEL TAIT, to RUSH OF FOOLS first big arena tour with NEWSBOYS on the GO TOUR, together we have been a part of re-shaping the industry and providing excellent content for our consumers.
"Under the FCM banner, we will continue to shape, create, and build the brands you know and love. We will also get to be a part of new brands and products together. My specific area of focus will be as the Brand Manager for TEEN MANIA’s ACQUIRE THE FIRE tour. I will continue to oversee the career direction of RUSH OF FOOLS & 1 GIRL NATION and the other artists on the PHE roster, along with DAVE and WES. BRITTANY MILLER (soon to be BRITTANY SPICER), who has been on the road as road manager for 1 GIRL NATION, will be coming off the road and be your in-house contact for all day-to-day needs of these acts."
