WME has hired two former CAA department heads in the past two days to join the Nashville office, the latest moves as the agency ramps up leadership at its Music City outpost.
On Monday, former CAA Nashville co-head Scott Clayton joined WME as a partner and co-head of WME’s Nashville office, where he will also lead the agency’s Rock division. He joins WME’s Nashville co-heads Rob Beckham, Joey Lee, Greg Oswald and Jay Williams in overseeing daily operations.
Last month, Lee and Williams joined Beckham and Oswald as co-heads.
Today, WME said Matthew Morgan will also join the Nashville office as a music agent. He previously co-headed CAA’s festival department, where he worked with bands including Michael Franti & Spearhead, Pussy Riot and Zac Brown Band among others.
