International Track 200

Formerly known as the entertainment agency James Grant, YMU became a talent management group following a buyout backed by private equity firm Trilantic in 2018. Overseas sales hit £12.6m that year, boosted by the 2017 acquisition of LA-based music agency Deckstar. Chief executive Neil Rodford, 50, leads the London-based group, whose clients include TV stars Ant and Dec as well as American DJ Steve Aoki.
