Peter Brown

Chairman and CEO at BLJ Worldwide

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, Peter assumed full responsibility for their management. He was asked to become Managing Director of Apple Corps at its formation, and supervised its day-to-day operations.

When The Beatles broke up, he became President and Chief Executive Officer of the Robert Stigwood Organisation, 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 U.S. 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 also the author of The Love You Make, a definitive biography of The Beatles.

Peter was appointed CBE in the UK 2016 New Year’s honors list for services to trade between the United States and the United Kingdom.
