Giampaolo New GM At Cirque Du Soleil

(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) —
Aldo Giampaolo is the new general manager of Cirque du Soleil’s new business unit Theatre Shows; he will manage operations and develop commercial activities of this new unit. “The new approach taken by Cirque du Soleil immediately piqued my interest," he said. "It meshes perfectly with my desire to create international-scale projects by means of a quality-focused creative process.”

“Aldo’s experience is peerless," said Éric Fournier, senior vice president, New Ventures at Cirque du Soleil. "His in-depth knowledge of the milieu and its main players will help us further focus our efforts on creation and on nurturing talent.”

Cirque du Soleil recently entered into a partnership with Clear Channel Entertainment to create a series of arena concerts, which will kick off next winter and visit 100 North American cities. Giampaolo and his team will manage the partnership; he will be supported by Kiki Nesbitt as executive producer, who has worked with the organization for 12 years. He has more than 25 years’ experience in the field of show distribution and became president of the Gillett Entertainment Group in 2001. –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
