Guy Oseary’s universe thrums with activity as a cross section of talent traverses music, film, TV, art and tech. It’s why Variety has named him 2022’s Music Mogul of the Year.
Today, Oseary’s resume includes management of the megastar who put him on the map, Madonna, as well as U2 and the Red Hot Chili Peppers; digital investments with longtime partner Ashton Kutcher (including early bets on Spotify, Airbnb and Nest, among others); and the Web3 venture Bored Ape Yacht Club, signing BAYC creator Yuga Labs as a management client and, in short order, becoming a partner.
“Guy’s superpower is that he always knows what’s going to be happening next year,” says longtime friend Chris Rock. “He’s like a human time machine.”
