Nettwerk Music Group's Terry McBride will receive the 2011 MMF Honour Roll Award from Music Managers Forum Canada. The presentation will take place March 1 at Toronto's Bymark restaurant, during Canadian Music Week 2011.

McBride is the CEO and co-founder of Vancouver-based Nettwerk Music Group, which includes a record label, management firm, publishing company, and other divisions. Nettwerk employs more than 130 staff and has offices in New York, Los Angeles, London, Boston, Nashville and Hamburg. He is Sarah McLachlan's long-time manager and former manager for Avril Lavigne and Barenaked Ladies.

Over the years, the management arm has also helped develop the careers of Coldplay, Dido, Jars of Clay, Jamiroquai, Katherine Jenkins, Stereophonics and Sum 41, among others.

"As a leader, innovator, and accomplished international artist manager, Terry has inspired so many while following through on his wealth of ideas about artist management and the evolving music industry," MMF Canada president Ryhna Thompson said in a statement.

The previous Honour Roll Award recipients are: Bernie Finkelstein (Bruce Cockburn), Bruce Allen (Bryan Adams, Michael Buble), Ray Danniels (Rush) and Sam Feldman (Diana Krall, Elvis Costello, Norah Jones, James Taylor). The award, now in its fifth year, recognizes outstanding achievements and excellence in Canadian and international artist management.

The non-profit MMF Canada is one of 17 MMF chapters around the world and has more than 100 members nationally. The organization's mandate is to raise the profile and professional standards of music managers.
