Live Nation appoints president of brand and marketing partnerships

Greg Segal excited for new opportunity

Greg Segal has been appointed president of brand and marketing partnerships in Australia and New Zealand for Live Nation. 

Based in Sydney, Segal will report to Alan Ridgeway, chairman of Live Nation Asia-Pacific and Russell Wallach, global president sponsorship and media.

In this newly created position, Segal brings experience having recently served as managing director of Sydney agency mixitup, which he founded in 2006.

In 2013, Live Nation acquired a majority share of mixitup and since then Segal has been responsible for the creation and leadership of the current brand partner program, which includes integrated and ‘always on’ partnerships with leading Australian and New Zealand brands Optus, AMEX, Air New Zealand, Spark NZ, Virgin Australia, NAB, Hertz and more. 

“Since we originally partnered with Greg in 2013, he has developed world-class brand partnerships for the Australian and New Zealand markets. We welcome working more closely with Greg to build on both existing and new brand partnerships in his new role with Live Nation,” Ridgeway said. 

Wallach said Segal has a proven track record of creating ground-breaking brand partnerships. 

“This opportunity will see him leading a team of specialists in Australia and New Zealand to craft end-to-end solutions for leading brands in music and entertainment,” he said. 

2018 was a record year for Live Nation Australia with some of the biggest tours in history hitting the country, including P!nk, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars and Shania Twain. This year is set to be another big one with tours from Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Fleetwood Mac, Maroon 5, Metallica, Childish Gambino and Post Malone and more.  

“Over the last few years we have built a great team and a fantastic group of brand partners. I am excited to be able to continue to work with the team to deliver unforgettable live experiences to music fans across Australia and New Zealand,” Segal said.

Taking performance cues from east Asian markets

As the ‘Asian century’ becomes ever more prevalent and the Fourth Industrial Revolution gathers speed, marketers are having to surf a tidal wave of creative destruction. The choice is stark: Embrace change, or resign yourself to a Darwinian fate.

Searching for social and marketing data

Many marketers, agencies - and everyone in between - get caught up on bubble references and data points. They’ll use Facebook best practice as the only best practice for Facebook executions and only consider metrics and responses of the one channel they’re expected to deliver on.

Why Australia needs more leaders

A few weeks ago, our Prime Minister, Scott Morrison took it upon himself to tell companies and their CEOs where to go when it came to societal issues. It wasn’t an organisation’s place to get involved. Instead, he said it should be left to governments to solve societies challenges.
