Sean Morgan, a manager and booker at Manchester University’s students’ union venue the Manchester Academy for over two decades, has joined a different ‘academy’ operation, the Academy Music Group (who run most music venues with ‘academy’ in the name, but not the Manchester one) in a consultancy role. Morgan departed the Manchester venue late last year.

Confirming his appointment, AMG’s COO Graham Walters told reporters: “Sean has a wealth of experience and will be looking at our venue portfolio with a view to generate new business and enhance programming. Over the years, Sean has developed and maintained excellent relationships with agents and promoters and he is sure to bring new ideas to the table”.

As previously reported, VMS Live announced this week that it was taking over the management of the Manchester Academy complex, the company counting two former AMG execs amongst its number.
