For more than 40 years – serving you the best talent!
GLP was founded in 1979 by Georg Leitner in Vienna, Austria. It wasn’t till 1985 when Jack Bart, agent and manager of world-star James Brown gave GLP the first opportunity to grow into an international agency. Since then, GLP has not only established itself worldwide as a renowned artist agency but has also become active in the fields of Family Entertainment, Corporate & Private Events, Artist Marketing, Label- and Business-Services as well as Worldwide Touring of its vast artist roster.
For GLP, quality rules and artists are first. Our focus on integrating existing and new ideas with our global partners has accompanied GLP while growing into a best-practice boutique agency specialized and committed in serving both artists and promoters, understanding and well balancing the wants and needs of both sides of the business. The principles established therein have guided the people working with GLP ever since:
- Innovation & Creativity
- Personal loyalty & integrity
- Empowerment of our partners
- Entertainment biz know-how & experience
- Strictly striving for a Win-Win-situation for everybody
With an ever-expanding international network of people from all sides of the industry co-operating and subscribing to the ideals and principles established by GLP the opportunities remain unlimited. Finding creative, market-driven solutions, thinking outside the box and breaking new ground is what we aspire to do. Today, GLP is active in many areas of the live entertainment business - whether locally, globally or digitally. Our artists and productions and those of our long-standing partners tour the whole world and have certainly enchanted you too.
