Over the course of a career spanning more than three decades, Steve Leber has earned a reputation as a rock music manager and producer, and as one of the most innovative forces in the entertainment industry. He began his career at the William Morris Agency, establishing the company's music division and handling such artists as the Rolling Stones, Simon & Garfunkel, Diana Ross, the Jackson Five, and the Beach Boys. He left William Morris to form his own management company, Contemporary Communications Corporation, where he managed artists including Aerosmith, AC/DC, Def Leppard, Michael Bolton, and 'N Sync, among others.
Early in his career, Steve established himself as a non-traditionalist and as someone who thought outside the box. One early example was his precedent-setting arena tour of Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar. Similarly, he produced Beatlemania; unique in both concept and design, the multimedia sensation has grossed a staggering $100 million worldwide. He built on this success with family entertainment ventures including the critically-acclaimed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Coming Out of Their Shells tour. He also produced the extraordinarily successful North American tour of the world-renowned Moscow Circus, which broke box-office records at venues across the United States and was named Family Show of the Year by Performance Magazine three years in a row. He has numerous business interests, including as founder and major stockholder of MobileLife, AT&T’s only independent national dealer.
Steve and his wife, Marion, have been married for more than 40 years and are the proud grandparents of Matthew, Jack, Danielle, Rachel, Jared, Sabrina, and Jake.
