LONDON (CelebrityAccess) — Richard Griffiths and Harry Magee, co-founders of the music management company Modest!, have been announced as the joint recipients of the 2019 Music Industry Trusts Award.
“Richard and Harry have been at the forefront of the British music industry for over forty years. Individually and as the founders of Modest! they have continually set the benchmark in management and have led countless artists to huge success. Honoring two artist managers is a first for the MITS and we’re proud for them both to join the illustrious recipients’ list. We look forward to a fantastic awards night on 4th November,” said David Munns OBE, chairman of the MITS Award committee.
The award will be presented on 4th November during a fundraiser to support the BRIT Trust and Nordoff Robbins. Harry and Richard follow last year’s MITS honoree, Emma Banks, and join the ranks of previous recipients including Rob Stringer, Sir Lucian Grainge, Ahmet Ertegun, Michael Eavis CBE, and Roger Daltry CBE.
The two veteran talent managers founded Modest! in 2003 and currently represent a roster that includes artists ranging from Niall Horan to Little Mix, Olly Murs to 5 Seconds of Summer.
‘It is indeed a great honor for Richard and I to be given the MITS Award and to have the opportunity to highlight two exceptional charities in The BRIT Trust and Nordoff Robbins. We proudly look forward to November 4th for some fun and fundraising,” Magee said.
“It is such an honor to be receiving this amazing award together with my great friend and partner Harry Magee. To help raise money for these two wonderful charities is an honor and a privilege,” Griffiths added.
