James Grant Group, a talent agency and professional services business for TV personalities and sports stars backed by Gresham Private Equity, has bought Industry Media.
This is the ninth acquisition completed by JGG since Gresham backed its management buyout in August 2009, and follows its purchase of Gallowgate in April. Lloyds Bank provided funding for the acquisition.
Gresham formed James Grant Group (JGG) in 2009 with the acquisition of five companies from listed entertainment company Formation Group.
Industry Media specialises in business affairs consultancy for the television industry.
The deal comes after JGG agreed last month to partner with EMI Music Publishing, the world’s leading publisher of pop music, to launch the James Grant Music Library on EMI’s PLAY platform.
