STAR MAKERS: THE STARS BEHIND THE STARS




MUSIC MANAGERS FORUM


The forum was founded in 1992 in Manchester, United Kingdom.


The MMF is the leading representative body for UK based music artist managers. At present its membership stands at over 400 managers, representing in total over 1,000 artists including Arctic Monkeys, David Gilmour, Elton John, Lily Allen, Mumford & Sons, Robbie Williams, Paul McCartney, Radiohead, Tom Jones and more.


Originally called The Managers Forum Ltd was also known as the IMF (International Managers Forum). In 2005 the name MMF, Music Managers Forum, was decided to be the name for the body.


Under CEO Jon Webster, the MMF undertook a major review of its ambitions and objectives in 2009, resulting in the appointment of a new board of directors led by Chairman Brian Message of ATC.


Board members also include Adam Tudhope, Ian McAndrew, Scott Rodger, Carol Crabtree, Charlie Carne ľ CFO, Gary McClarnan, Paul Burger, Tim Clark and Erik Nielsen. Its Advisory Board consists of Jazz Summers, David Stopps, John Glover, Gail Colson, Dennis Muirhead, Keith Harris, Stephen Budd and Phil Nelson.


The organisational review also resulted in a revamped website, which launched in the early part of 2010, as well as the establishment of a series of MMF courses and events designed to educate and inform artist managers.

Courses and events run so far have included the MMF Induction Day course, the MMF/MPA Professional Training Programme, an event titled Hot Sync which looked at how managers can sync their artists' music for television and film, as well as a networking event for agents, promoters and managers.


Issues the MMF are currently pushing for include an on-air/on-sale campaign to make singles available for sale as soon as they are broadcast on radio, and therefore reduce piracy, and a campaign for better licensing across the industry.


The MMF website states that their "emphasis is on implementing positive actions to assist our members with a keen eye on the 'next generation' of entrepreneurs and innovators" and Chairman Brian Message was recently interviewed by the Financial Times for an article looking at the music industry's new business model. Brian Message also recently took part in The International Alliance Culture and Creative Industries Symposium at the House Of Lords.


The MMF has spawned affiliated organisations around the world, such as in Australia, Ireland, France and the USA, as well as an international umbrella organisation, the IMMF.


If you are an Artist Manager, MMIP can certainly recommend you to join the organization.
