The Australian music industry was shocked and saddened by the recent passing of Rob Potts, of Entertainment Edge.
Rob’s family have released a statement to the music industry, which is below. Rob’s son Jeremy Dylan has been made CEO of Rob Potts Entertainment Edge. He worked at the company alongside his father for a decade.
After the recent passing of concert promoter Rob Potts, Rob’s family want to express their
gratitude for the extraordinary messages of sympathy and support from throughout the
industry in Australia, the United States and beyond. The tributes in the media and at the
memorial events in Sydney and Nashville confirm the esteem in which Rob was held and the
impact he had on the music world and the people in it – as a friend, manager, mentor,
promoter and co-founder and architect of the CMC Rocks festivals.
Rob’s legacy of bridging the divide between the country music industries of Australia and North America and strengthening the Aussie country scene will be continued into the future. Rob Potts Entertainment Edge will continue to operate, with Rob’s son Jeremy Dylan assuming the CEO position and Sally Potts staying on as Chief Financial Officer. Dylan worked alongside Rob at RPEE since 2007, and Sally had returned to the company earlier in 2017 after some years in the charity sector.
Rob Potts Entertainment Edge will continue to partner with Chugg Entertainment in the CMC Rocks festival and various country tours, and with Jeff Lewis on Tommy Emmanuel’s Australian tours.
