Kilimanjaro Live’s Steve Tilley took home the promoters’ promoter award at this year’s Arthur Awards.

He toured with Ed Sheeran last year and is currently promoting band of the hour The 1975 as well as Catfish and the Bottlemen, who’ve just taken home their first Brit award.

The company is also nominated as promoter of the year at the upcoming Music Week Awards April 28 – a title it has already claimed at the Live UK Music Business Awards in October.

The year 2015, “Kilimanjaro’s most successful,” as a statement reads, also “included passing the milestone of £100m in sales since its founding year in 2008.”

With two new appointments, the company is strengthening its booking and promotion departments.

Taylor was booking venues for MAMA & Company before joining Kilimanjaro.

Donnelly has more than six years of experience in the UK comedy industry, and will “help build the company’s position as a major promoter within the British comedy industry,” the statement reads.
