LOS ANGELES, Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- John Tomlinson, vice president of U.S.-based Lockton Companies, has been named by Variety as one of "Hollywood's New Leaders" in business and finance. In its annual Hollywood's New Leaders issue, Variety profiles business professionals across all segments of entertainment that are making their mark on the industry.

Tomlinson has been delivering risk management solutions to the entertainment industry for over 15 years and, after recently relocating to Los Angeles from Nashville, has quickly become entrenched in the local music landscape, representing some of the world's most notable performing artists in EDM (electronic dance music), pop, hip-hop, and rock.

Variety writes that Tomlinson spent his early career at his family's firm in Nashville, which "helped pioneer the business of insuring touring bands," and he has certainly maintained this pioneering spirit by recently innovating new Cancellation and Non-Appearance insurance programs for the live music industry.

Tomlinson consults extensively with artist and business managers, promoters and live event organizers, record labels, recording studios, music publishers, and concert and event support professionals. For more information, contact Tomlinson at (818) 836-5858 or jtomlinson@lockton.com.
