The Bowery Presents Names Charley Magrew SVP of Ticketing, Marketing and Sponsorships

The Bowery Presents — AEG Presents’ concert promoter on the East Coast — appointed Charley Magrew as senior vp of marketing, ticketing and partnerships, the company announced on Wednesday (Oct. 12).

In his new role, Magrew will lead and oversee marketing, ticketing and sponsorship teams for The Bowery Presents as it expands its footprint and business operations. His focus will include new venue development, institutional and venue branding, event marketing, strategic partnerships, ticket inventory management and new revenue generation. Magrew previously served as vp of marketing at the company.

“Charley is a well-respected leader in our business and has been instrumental in the development and launches of several of Bowery’s venues, including Brooklyn Steel, Webster Hall, and Roadrunner,” said The Bowery Presents founder John Moore and his partner Jim Glancy in a joint statement announcing Magrew’s promotion. “With exciting new projects forthcoming, we are thrilled to see Charley’s role expand during a pivotal time for our company.”


Magrew, a Minnesota native, began his career promoting shows at the Orpheum, State and Pantages Theatres in Minneapolis, before moving to New York to serve as director of marketing for Broadway Across America. He joined Bowery Presents in 2015.

“The Bowery Presents has been a leader and tastemaker in the New York City music scene for nearly two decades, and it is an honor to have had a hand in guiding the company’s expanded presence in the East Coast, while also playing a role in helping to shape Bowery’s future,” said Magrew.
