Manners McDade’s Clare Everson has been awarded the prestigious Richard Toeman Scholarship.
In its twelfth year, the scholarship aims to support the progress of outstanding individuals working within the music publishing industry. The award encourages new recruits to the industry to develop their skills and experience through study and to support each year’s recipients to further enhance their preparation for a successful career in the industry. As part of the award, Clare receives bespoke training and coaching in her specific practice areas, as well as furthering her involvement with the MPA and YMPA.
Clare joined Manners McDade in 2018, where she looks after creative sync and licensing for the company’s specialist contemporary classical and electronic publishing roster. Her role encompasses worldwide creative pitching of composers, artists and repertoire across advertising, film, games, branded content and TV - as well as further creative services for the company and its roster including sync, marketing & PR. She also manages artist and pianist, Poppy Ackroyd, who is signed to One Little Indian Records.
The awards were announced at the MPA AGM earlier last month and Clare was awarded the professional award alongside Marie Robinson for the student award.
“Clare is such an exciting talent, and we couldn’t be more proud to have her represent our catalogue for sync every day. She’s incredibly deserving of this award and recognition of her blossoming career - watch out world!” said Harriet Moss, MD, Manners McDade.
