Stuart Camp, long-term manager of global superstar Ed Sheeran, is now a fully independent operator.

Camp was previously tied into a JV with London-based Rocket Music – the entertainment firm co-founded by Sir Elton John.

Now Camp’s UK-based company – Grumpy Old Management Ltd – has gone it alone, and will continue to manage Sheeran.

Camp (pictured with Sheeran) joined Rocket in 2007 and signed Sheeran in 2011.

He previously worked at Warner/Atlantic alongside the likes of Korda Marshall and Max Lousada.

“We are immensely proud of all our achievements together and look forward to seeing Stu’s company and Ed’s success go from strength to strength.”

“It has been a very rewarding and exciting experience supporting them through their fantastic journey.

“We are immensely proud of all our achievements together and look forward to seeing Stu’s company and Ed’s success go from strength to strength.”
