LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Veteran entertainment business manager Gary Haber passed away on April 7, 2014 at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, CA. He was 68.
Mr. Haber first established his company, The Haber Corporation in California in 1977 and then expanded with a Nashville office in 1990, employing more than 80 people and representing a wide range of clients in the entertainment industry.
