Proper Win Sales Team Award at the Music Week Awards

We’re delighted to have won the Sales Team award at last night’s Music Week Awards. The ceremony took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London with the industry’s best and brightest out in force to celebrate.

Other winners on the night include Banquet Records who won the Proper sponsored Independent Retailer category, Kobalt Music Publishing who won Publisher of the Year and SJM Concerts, winner of the Live Music Promoter (Company) category. You can find the full list of winners below.

Pat Howe, our Head of Sales said “I’m very proud that last night we won the Best Sales Team at the Music Week Awards. Now that there is no category for Best Distributor I think that this award reflects our performance across the business. Speaking to lots of different customers at the awards they were hugely complimentary about the different departments at Proper.”
 
Drew Hill, MD added “I’m so proud of our amazing team and so excited about the future as we gear up to move into bigger premises later this year.”

The Music Week Awards are the UK’s only music awards that recognise labels, publishing, live, retail, A&R, radio, marketing and PR – all parts of this industry we love!

Each year these prestigious awards are peer-voted and judged by an independent panel of specialist judges who will be announced soon! The awards are stylishly presented at the ceremony to over 900 of the industry’s leading figures to celebrate the achievements of the top music industry professionals and teams.
