The Music Managers Forum Canada is pleased to announce that the recipient of the 8th Annual MMF Canada Honour Roll Award is Gilles Paquin of Paquin Entertainment Group. The MMF Honour Roll Award is presented each year to recognize outstanding achievements and excellence in Canadian and International Artist Management. Gilles Paquin joins former honourees Bernie Finkelstein, Bruce Allen, Ray Danniels, Sam Feldman, Terry McBride, Larry Wanagas and Jake Gold in receiving this prestigious award.

Possessing a rare blend of artistic passion, creativity and business savvy, Gilles Paquin has been involved with the arts and entertainment industry for over 30 years as a manager, promoter, producer and entrepreneur. He is the President and CEO of Paquin Entertainment Group, which encompasses four divisions: artist management, artists' agency, theatre & film division, and corporate services.

"It's been wonderful to turn this tremendous passion into a lifelong career," says Gilles Paquin. "I have been blessed to have worked with, and been surrounded by, great artists."

Today, Gilles personally manages legendary icons Randy Bachman, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Bachman & Turner, and critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter Del Barber, overseeing their tours nationally and internationally. He supports, oversees, and directs each artist's creative ventures, which includes producing Randy Bachman's television special, Vinyl Tap presents: Every Song Tells a Story; a live Bachman & Turner concert special shot in 3D at the Roseland Ballroom in New York; a bio-documentary on Buffy Sainte-Marie; and an in-studio concert special with Bachman-Cummings, called First Time Around.

Gilles founded the agency division in 1985. It has since become one of Canada's premier entertainment agencies, representing a roster of international clientele that includes musicians, such as Tegan & Sara, Serena Ryder, Matt Andersen, The Sheepdogs, Whitehorse and K'NAAN, along with ballet and theatrical companies. In 2004, he launched a subsidiary, Koba Entertainment, focusing on large-scale family-oriented theatrical productions, such as Dora the Explorer, The Backyardigans, Toopy and Binoo, and Franklin the Turtle, among others.

Always looking for his next entrepreneurial endeavor, Gilles recently spearheaded Act 5 Entertainment, an international entertainment company manages an array of projects, including live theatricals, exhibitions, and merchandising opportunities for exciting productions such as 50 Shades! The Musical Parody, Nitro Circus, Val Kilmer's one-man show Citizen Twain, and is currently developing rock musical Prairie Town, to name a few.

Gilles also co-founded the Venue Coalition, representing a network of 55 premier North American arenas, and continues to work as an advisor. He also served as a board member for the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (CARAS-Juno Awards) from 1998-2004.
