Long-time Goldenvoice veteran Lesley Olenik has left the company for a new role as Vice President of Touring at Live Nation. Based in Los Angeles, Olenik will report to Omar Al-Joulani, SVP of Touring.
Prior to her exit from Goldenvoice, Olenik served for almost a decade as Senior Vice President of Talentbuying for Theaters & Arenas, overseeing bookings for venues such as Shrine Auditorium & Expo Hall, Club Nokia, Nokia Theatre and the Fox Theater.
Her other experience includes stints at Nederlander, where she was director of talent buying for all of the company’s venue portfolio. She cut her teeth in the talent buying business with the Viejas Casino organization, according to her Linkedin page.
Olenik’s transition is the second longtime Goldenvoice alumni to join the Live Nation team in as many weeks. Earlier this week, David Lefkowitz joined Live Nation’s Philadelphia office after serving as a vice president at Goldenvoice for almost a decade.
