The EMM team are thrilled to congratulate Kathryn Enticott on being award the Association of British Orchestras‘ 2017 Artist Manager of the Year Award.


The citation can be read below:


The winner of the ABO/Rhinegold Artist Manager of the Year award is Kathryn Enticott. A popular and respected
manager, Kathryn has been at the forefront of her profession for many years. Whilst at IMG Artists, she launched
and built the careers of a number of now leading soloists and conductors including pianist Leif Ove Andsnes,
with whom she has been working for twenty-five years. Few can fail to have been impressed by his ‘Beethoven
Journey’, which Kathryn conceived and planned with Andsnes, culminating in a sold-out series of concerts at the
2015 BBC Proms. That same year, she set-up her own boutique company, Enticott Music Management. This gave
her the freedom to explore additional creative passions and to develop new endeavours within the performing
arts, including Andsnes’ first Rosendal Chamber Music Festival in Norway last year, which simply wouldn’t have
been possible without her dedication and commitment.
Kathryn also has a proven track record of managing and mentoring young artists, allowing them to develop their
artistic potential in a non-pressurized environment. It is little wonder then that the 2016 BBC Young Musician,
Sheku Kanneh-Mason, surely a star in the making, decided to sign with Enticott Music Management, rather than
looking to a bigger company.
Kathryn has earned the respect and admiration of orchestras and presenters, who appreciate that she has a deep
understanding and empathy for the challenges they face. She is an excellent partner, and whilst always
representing the best interests of her artists, works tirelessly to find solutions for partners too, and to bring
projects to fruition.
