Partners JORDAN BERLIANT and JEFF VARNER have launched REVELATION MANAGEMENT GROUP, based in L.A., as a division of RED LIGHT MANAGEMENT. The pair were previously housed at THE COLLECTIVE.

“We are happy to welcome them and their great roster of artists into the RLM family,” said RED LIGHT MANAGEMENT founder/owner CORAN CAPSHAW.
“We are very happy to be joining RED LIGHT and equally excited to keep the core of our great management team together,” remarked BERLIANT. “We feel that our new partnership affords our clients with the best possible platform to succeed in a landscape that is filled with change and disruption. We are convinced that the combination of our attention and focus on detail, strategy and innovation, along with the strength and resources of Red Light, is a winning formula for artists.”
"We’re very excited about the formation of REVELATION MANAGEMENT GROUP and our partnership with RED LIGHT MANAGEMENT,” added VARNER. “Having a company that allows us to work with such great artists as well as good friends and colleagues is something very special. I look forward to continuing the amazing work we've been able to achieve together and am eager to explore the new opportunities that this partnership will provide."
