Los Angeles-based management company Faculty Management has promoted Janelle Lopez to General Manager.
Founded in 2015 by CEO Jared Paul, Faculty Management’s roster includes the likes of New Kids On The Block and emerging pop act Sabrina Carpenter.
Additionally, it encompasses Faculty Productions – a live event producer which has produced sold-out tours for Dancing With The Stars, Julianne and Derek Hough, American Idol, and more.
Janelle Lopez (pictured) began her career at talent management company the Firm and then joined Paul at Azoff Geary Paul Management in 2004. She was hired by Faculty when it launched in 2015.
At Faculty, Lopez – who previously played a key role in the launch of Fifth Harmony – has worked closely with artists such as New Kids on the Block, Lea Michele, Sabrina Carpenter, and more.
“Janelle has been consistently instrumental to the success of Faculty and its entire roster. Over the years, she has proven herself to be one of the most diligent, dedicated, and driven managers in the business.”
