Howard Kaufman

Profile:
Howard Kaufman (died January 2017, aged 79) was an artist manager. His company HK Management had an artist roster that included Aerosmith, Stevie Nicks, Jimmy Buffett, Chicago (2), Lenny Kravitz, Def Leppard and many others.

In 1974, Kaufman teamed with Irving Azoff to form Front Line Management, which notably guided the careers of the Eagles, Steely Dan and Buffett, among others. The company dissolved in the early 1980's, around the time the Eagles began their long hiatus, but was resurrected by the pair in early 2005. The revamped Front Line experienced rapid growth and in 2008 was acquired by Ticketmaster, which named Irving Azoff CEO.
