TORONTO (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The Agency Group is pleased to announce that Ralph James has been promoted to President of the Canadian operations. He will continue to actively oversee his roster of active and emerging artists.
“Ralph has been instrumental in building a major roster of talent for The Agency Group, both in Canada and internationally.” – Steve Herman, CEO North America.
“His new position reflects his dedication to the company and his clients. His diligence since forming the Canadian Company with Jack Ross has been extraordinary, and has manifested itself in the enormous growth of the Canadian Company.” – Neil Warnock, CEO.
Ralph began his career as the bass player for Platinum-selling rock band Harlequin, touring for over a decade. In 1996 he, along with Neil Warnock and Jack Ross, launched the Canadian office. He began with a small roster of Canadian artists, but also signed then-unknown acts such as Nickelback, Three Days Grace and Billy Talent, among others.
In the same nature as the artists he’s developed, Ralph’s career has continued to flourish. He’s won multiple awards including Canadian Music Week’s Booking Agent of the Year Award five times. Most recently, Ralph had the honor of being the first Canadian to be nominated for the Bobby Brooks Agent of the Year Award in 2007 and 2008. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
