Over a year since veteran talent rep Will Ward exited Roar to launch Fourward, established April of 2018, the global management, production and business development company is excited to announce the opening of their new office in Nashville. Fourward Nashville is located at 632 Fogg Street. Nashville-based team members will include Alicia Jones as a manager and Ben Simonetti in an A&R role, along with support staff. The team at Fourward Nashville can now be reached at (424) 303-5000.

"I am excited to bring the team at Fourward's experience in building global artists and brands to my hometown," Ward said of the announcement. "We offer artists a unique and competitive alternative with access at the highest level in music and Hollywood."

Adding to the excitement is that one of country music’s most intriguing new stars, Abby Anderson, has signed on as one of Fourward Nashville’s newest clients for management.

Nashville serves as the newest office location for Fourward, a company that already has offices in Los Angeles, New York and Melbourne. Anderson joins Fourward TV/film clients such as Chris Hemsworth, Liam Hemsworth, Cobie Smulders, Aisha Tyler and music clients such as Elliphant.

Before serving as founder of Fourward, Ward represented A-listers such as Adam Sandler, Edward Norton, Dustin Hoffman and Mark Wahlberg at Endeavor (WME) then built and guided the careers of actor Chris Hemsworth and country music superstars The Zac Brown Band, among others, at Roar. 

In addition, Ward’s career outside of traditional entertainment continues to grow as the co-founder and co-owner of restaurant chain Ottos Tacos. Ward is also the co-founder and co-owner of health, wellness and fitness app Centr alongside private equity giant Quadrant and client Chris Hemsworth. Centr was one of the most successful launches of an app in the fitness space this year.
