Cheetham Joins SSC

Former Clockwork Management chief Paul Cheetham is teaming with SSC Group to set up and run the German company’s new management division.

He’ll be joining the Düsseldorf-based company’s Berlin office, where he’ll also help develop its roster, increase the amount of concerts, tours and events it organises, and assist in the management of its brand entertainment projects.

He’ll be managing director of what will be called SSC Management, and he and SSC Group will be the shareholders.

SSC is a promoter and booking agency that’s now working on tours by The Go! Team, Hercules & Love Affair, and Punks Jump Up.

“SSC Group is definitely one of the fastest growing companies in the German live business with offices in Berlin, Düsseldorf, and Basel, Switzerland,” Cheetham explained.

Clockwork Management, the Berlin-based company Cheetham has run since working for the old Mean Fiddler Music Group in the UK and Live Nation in Finland, will now come under the SSC Management umbrella.

He’ll also continue booking acts for Popkomm and working with Berlin Music Week, although in future those services will also be undertaken on behalf of SSC.
