Founded by Mark Richardson, Outpost Management has continued to prove itself in the music industry for nearly a decade of success.
Built upon the foundations of 35 years of experience, Mark worked in Promotions with Worldwide Talent Agency and Marketing at Virgin Records. He was the Head of Marketing at SBK Records, Marketing Director/General Manager at CBS Records (later Sony Music) and Managing Director at Independiente.
Throughout this time, Mark worked with artists such as Jamiroquai, Paul Weller, Travis, Des’ree, and Reef. A highlight of his early career was winning a US MTV award for Best Video with Jamiroquai’s “Virtual Insanity”.
Mark set up Outpost Management in 2010. Here, he worked with Kimbra, who’s first album ‘Vows’ debuted in the US billboard top 200 at Number 14 and achieved platinum status in her native NZ/Australia. She won the ARIA Award for ‘Best Female Artist’ twice in 2011-2012 and 5 of the 6 Tui New Zealand Music Awards. In 2013 she gained a "Record of the Year" Grammy for her contribution to Gotye’s global hit "Somebody That I Used To Know” and the pair picked up another Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
In 2018, Ahilleas (Louis) Papantos formerly of Zero Through Nine (Japanese Wallpaper) joined as a partner of Outpost, integrating ROAM Esports into the Outpost Group as a connection into the world of esports and video games.
Forming a young and versatile team of specialists, Outpost Management heavily focuses on the development of artists, guiding them through the journey of creative success.
