MODEST! MANAGEMENT co-founders Richard Griffiths and Harry Magee, are the first artiste managers to receive the Music Industry Trusts (MITs) award.
The pair, whose roster includes Little Mix, One Direction, Niall Horan and MNEK, follow in the footsteps of previous recipients such as CAA agent Emma Banks, Kylie Minogue OBE and Universal Music Group CEO Sir Lucian Grainge.
“It’s fantastic that management has at last been recognised at the Music Industry Trusts awards,” say Griffiths and Magee. “We look forward to many more managers being honoured.”
The MIRs awards ceremony takes place on 4 November at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London and attracts more than 1,000 industry professionals.
