SEG Management announce new signings

By | Published on Wednesday 21 April 2010

Management firm SEG Entertainment is celebrating its first full year in business by announcing a string of new signings and deals.

Both the reformed Leftfield and producer man William Orbit will be working with SEG moving forward, plus the company has acquired Mum’s The Word Management, which means they are adding Breakage, His Girl Friday and Shy FX to their roster.

SEG Entertainment is the music-focused division of the Dutch-based Sports Entertainment Group, and was formed when SEG acquired John Arnison’s John Management and Mark Marot’s Terra Firma management companies last year (a deal which, if nothing else, meant Marot’s company could no longer be confused for EMI’s flagging equity firm owners).

Confirming those new deals, and commenting on the first year of SEG Entertainment, Marot told CMU: “The music industry rulebook is being rewritten on a daily basis these days. Artists need managers who can deal with the complexities of a 360 degree world, and managers need the infrastructure to ensure they deliver for their artists in every way they can”.

He added: “We started SEG Entertainment UK a year ago with a vision of creating a new kind of management company, one which offers a full service to artists and gives managers currently working on their own a ready-made infrastructure which they can plug into. I am glad to report that it is a vision which the artist and management community also finds attractive”.
