Modest! Management will be honored with the Peter Grant Award at the Artist & Manager Awards in London on 11/14 for their 16 years in business working with One Direction, Little Mix, 5 Seconds of Summer and more. Founders Richard Griffiths and Harry Magee will accept the gong alongside partner Will Bloomfield at the annual ceremony organised by the Music Managers Forum and Featured Artists Coalition.

Since being founded in 2003, Modest! has also steered the careers of Niall Horan, Olly Murs, Katherine Jenkins, MNEK, Astrid S and Alison Moyet. The company now has offices in London, New York, Los Angeles, Sydney, and ongoing interests in music publishing, recording, touring, brand partnerships, merchandise, endorsements, theatre and television.

“Modest! are the epitome of a modern-day music management business, representing all aspects of their artists’ careers and acting for them on a global basis,” Annabella Coldrick, Chief Executive of the MMF, said. “Their achievements over the past 16 years have been nothing short of astonishing, and the company is wholly deserving of their Peter Grant Award.”

The Modest! team added: “We’re so proud of all our artists—both established and new. We’re also very proud of everyone in the company who everyday share a vision and commitment to nurture, develop and maintain the talents and careers of those artists around the world. It’s a very exciting time to be moving the company forward as our industry evolves within such revolutionary times.”
