"I'm humbled and grateful to Mandy, [GM] Lesly [Simon] and Garth for trusting me with the responsibilty of representing the greatest artist of all time," says Waters. SVP Mandy McCormack adds, "Chris is the perfect addition to the Pearl family! I can't wait to see his passion and excitement in action!" Reach Waters here.
