Letson joined EastCoast after graduating from East Carolina University, and got his feet wet by booking artists from ECE's roster.

Since the inception of the National Talent Buying Division, Mark has helped buy and produce over 2,000 shows ranging from fraternity gigs to large-scale corporate functions.
"Mark and I started our careers here at ECE at almost exactly the same time. I still tell great stories of the early years spent sharing offices and laughs. His friendship has meant more to me than I can say. Being able to work with such a great friend over the years and now welcome him into the ownership group is going to be huge for me both personally and professionally," states EastCoast Entertainment President and CEO, Doug Daniel.
