Nettwerk CEO Terry McBride Receives Honour Roll Award From MMF Canada

On Friday March 11, at Bymark Restaurant in Toronto, music industry luminaries gathered to celebrate the accomplishments and career of Nettwerk's CEO Terry McBride, along with Mary Martin, at the MMF (MusicManagersForum) Canada’s 5th Annual Honour Roll Reception.

Over 125 leaders of the music and management industries attended this lavish event and one of the many highlights of Canadian Music Week. The Honour Roll award was presented to industry leader Terry McBride, which sees him join the ranks previous winners Bernie Finkelstein, Bruce Allen and Ray Danniels and Sam Feldman.

Long time Nettwerk founder and partner of nearly 30 years, Mark Jowett, presented McBride with his award, while long time friend, EMI Canada President, Deane Cameron, was unable to attend but sent a special congratulatory video message. Guests were also treated to an acoustic performance by one of McBride’s newest clients Liam Titcomb. McBride was on hand to personally accept this honour, and did so with his customary soft-spoken grace. Well known for his social awareness and charitable efforts, McBride began his acceptance by asking the audience to join him in 30 seconds of silence to acknowledge the catastrophic events unfolding following the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

In addition to the Honour Roll Presentation, MMF Canada also chose this evening to present the second ever Pioneer Award to Mary Martin. The Pioneer Award was first presented in 2010 to Leonard Rambeau. Martin received this honour from her long-time friends Bob Hunka and noted artist EmmyLou Harris. Ms. Martin accepted the award personally, and regaled the audience with tales of her memories of Canada and important milestones of her legendary career. Ms. Martin is the first woman to be honoured by the MMF Canada.

The MMF Canada is proud to make a charitable donation to the Sarah McLaughlan Foundation, on behalf of Terry McBride and to World Vision’s Girls & Women Crisis Fund, on behalf of Mary Martin.
