Lady Gaga and Meghan Trainor’s former manager Troy Carter has been appointed the entertainment advisor for Prince’s estate.
The music executive plans to split his time between the late music icon’s back catalog and his role as Spotify’s global head of creative services – a job he took on last year.
“It’s an honor to serve as entertainment advisor to Prince’s estate,” Carter said in a statement to Billboard. “His music, message and independent thought has been a major influence throughout my career. I’m humbled to work with his family and Comerica Bank to advance his musical legacy into the future.”
Comerica Bank bosses recently replaced Bremer Trust officials as special administrator overtaking the management of the estate.
“Comerica Bank is proud to acknowledge that Troy Carter has been named entertainment advisor to the Prince estate,” a bank statement reads. “His considerable music industry experience and expertise will be invaluable as the work of the Prince estate moves forward.”
Prince died after suffering an prescription pill overdose at his Paisley Park home in Minnesota on April 21, 2016.
