Growing up in Houston, Texas, Ben Pogue was raised in a musical family where his passion for the music industry began. He moved to Nashville after high school to attend Belmont University, graduating in three years with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree with an emphasis in Production. Early in his Belmont career, Ben interned with Maximum Artist Management where he helped plan and implement the music industry’s first ever live-streamed concert for Maximum Artist client, Danny Gokey. While at Belmont, Ben’s studies included terms in London, England and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil where he immersed himself in the internal workings of the international music industry. He brought his experiences and network back to Maximum where he’s been a vital team member for over four years. Ben’s roles include overseeing the day-to-day management duties for GRAMMY Award-winning songwriter/producer, Bernie Herms, and newcomer Pop artist, Riley Clemmons.
