New York-based, full service management company

Magus Entertainment is a New York-based, full service management company. Prior to establishing Magus Entertainment, Wendy Laister founded and ran one of the largest independent music PR firms in Europe - Laister Dickson - that had offices in both London and Los Angeles. During her ten-year tenure as CEO and President, the company's client base grew to include The Rolling Stones, Guns 'N' Roses, Paul McCartney, Janet Jackson, Aerosmith, Greenpeace, INXS and Tina Turner, among many others. In addition, she coordinated global press and publicity campaigns for many of the world's largest televised music events, including Woodstock, Rock in Rio, two Nelson Mandela tributes, the Brit Awards, the Three Tenors concert series, and the Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary concert from Madison Square Garden. Prior to forming Laister Dickson, Wendy was Manager of corporate press and public relations for Richard Branson's Virgin Group. Laister's move into management and the formation of Magus Entertainment in the early 1990s came through her relationship with Aerosmith, whom she had worked with for many years. As their exclusive, worldwide manager, she spearheaded successful campaigns around three multiplatinum #1 albums, their first #1 US single, two record-breaking world tours, the launch of an Aerosmith Disney theme park ride and the release of a New York Times best-selling autobiography. Magus Entertainment's current client roster includes Duran Duran, Kai, Angelica Garcia, Olivia Chaney and Anamanaguchi.
