CAA Music Agent Jeffrey Azoff Exits to Form New Company
Longtime client Harry Styles of One Direction is expected to join the roster at Full Stop Management.
Agent Jeffrey Azoff is leaving CAA after three and a half years with the firm, Billboard has confirmed.
The son of music industry veteran Irving Azoff, 30-year-old Jeffrey Azoff is launching a new company called Full Stop Management, sources tell Billboard. He brings with him fellow CAA agent Tommy Bruce, with whom he worked on such clients as Meghan Trainor and Lukas Graham.
Longtime Azoff client Harry Styles of One Direction is expected to join the roster at Full Stop, which will be based in Los Angeles.
In what insiders are describing as a "supportive" parting, CAA music head Rob Light announced the news Monday morning to staffers.
Named to Billboard's 40 Under 40 Power Players list in 2015, Azoff, who arrived at CAA in 2012 after working for his father's Front Line Management for five years, handled tours for Eagles and Van Halen, among others.
Also joining the new company, which will open its doors imminently, is Azoff's assistant, Noelle Van Nostrand.
