Peter Brown CBE
Chairman & CEO
Peter Brown's mark in the worlds of music, entertainment and communications began as part of the management team for The Beatles.
With the death of Brian Epstein, he assumed full responsibility for their management. He was asked to become a director of Apple Corps at its formation, and oversaw its day-to-day operations. When The Beatles broke up, he became President and Chief Executive Officer of the Robert Stigwood Organization, Inc., a New York-based company with a high profile in theatre and film production and personal management. In 1977 Peter formed the Entertainment Development Company, a Wall Street-financed independent film company.
Seeing a need for sophisticated public relations counsel for high-visibility clients, he founded Brown & Powers in 1983, which today is BLJ Worldwide. He is the Chairman Emeritus of the board of Literacy Partners, a member of the US Steering Committee for the Duke of Edinburgh's Award, a member of the board for British American Business, a member of the selection committee of the Lee Strasberg Artistic Achievement Award, and a board member of the American Associates of the National Theatre of Great Britain.
He is the author of The Love You Make, a definitive biography of The Beatles. Born and educated in England, he is a US Citizen.
Peter was appointed CBE in the UK 2016 New Years honours list for services to trade between the United States and the United Kingdom.
