YMU are thrilled to announce the signing of Paris Hilton under YMU Music’s newly formed division FM Group. FM Group is led by Alex Frankel (FM President) and Chris Maher (FM COO), who will work with Hilton across all of her global music business.
Hilton co-founded 11:11, a next-gen entertainment company with a social audience of more than 64 million, and recently released her book ‘Paris: The Memoir’, which is currently No. 5 on the New York Times nonfiction bestseller chart. After recently welcoming her first child, Hilton is currently focused on her return to pop music and a new album, a follow up to her 2006 debut “Paris,” with collaborators and friends including Miley Cyrus, Meghan Trainor, Diplo and Sia.
“It is my enormous privilege to represent Paris Hilton and I’m so excited to share the incredible music we’re working on together” said Alex Frankel. “I’m grateful, as well, to Matt Colon and Mary Bekhait, for affording me the opportunity to lead my own FM team, a new division within the tremendous global YMU infrastructure.”
Mary Bekhait, YMU CEO added “We are thrilled that Paris Hilton has joined YMU – she is a true icon who transcends the worlds of culture, fashion, music and art like no other. We look forward to supporting Paris’ ambitions on a global scale.”
Matt Colon, global president of music, YMU, stated: “I’ve known and worked with Alex Frankel for nearly 15 years as client, colleague, fan and friend. I am excited at FM Group’s potential with its own unique vision for multi-hyphenate superstars guided by Alex’s unique creative vision paired with YMU’s breadth of services and network.”
