Mike Hertz, artist manager

Presented by the David M. Rezak Music Business Lecture Series Mike Hertz is a cancer who continuously reminds himself that life isn’t about the results, but the journey. Hertz manages multi hyphenates Dave “Lil Dicky” Burd and Davionte “Gata” Ganter as well as indie rockers CHAMPS. Originally from suburban Chicago and a University of Pittsburgh graduate, Hertz has been a passionate music fan his whole life. After stints at Ogilvy and Mather, the William Morris Agency (now WME) and Electus (IAC), Hertz fell into music management serendipitously through a blind email introduction the day after Lil Dicky posted the viral video “Ex Boyfriend” in 2013. Hertz is currently writing this bio ad hoc and speaking in third person is a really weird thing to do. Almost as weird as having a character loosely based on himself in a sitcom. In his/my spare time, Hertz enjoys going to see Phish and other music, his involvement on the board of the Treasure Beach Basketball Camp in Jamaica, traveling, staying physically active and philanthropy. One thing he tries to remind himself and others in the entertainment industry is no matter how lucky we are to be doing what we’re doing, there’s a much bigger world out there that constantly needs our help; advocacy and selflessness more than anything else—perspective is key.
