Default David Enthoven (Manager)



The stepfather of Tania Strecker (who used to go out with Robbie for some months), David became Robbie's manager eight years ago, and Robbie has benefitted from his music biz savvy, garnered over the years from managing bands like T-Rex and Roxy Music.

Having had two much-publicised court battles with previous managers, it was very important Robbie employed someone he could trust entirely, and he seems to have found that in David.

Rob's mum Jan calls him the "proud dad".

(Extract below taken from Mark Mccrum.com)

This man is the most crucial figure in Rob's entourage the man whose job, by his own admission, is 'to keep Rob happy'. Fifty-seven years old, ex-public school (Harrow, no less), strict teetotaller for fifteen years, manager David Enthoven is at first glance an unlikely figure to be Robbie William’s mentor-***-best-friend. You'd imagine this genial, balding, bespectacled figure to be chairman of some City stockbrokers, not the rock veteran he is, one time manager of Roxy Music, King Crimson, ELP, T. Rex (so called because David couldn't spell Tyrannosaurus).

At the centre of David's relationship with his current star act is alcohol and drugs: the avoiding, rather than the taking of them. Both men have indulged to excess, and then some. For David, addiction destroyed his earlier life: he lost his business, his wife, his houses in town and country and almost his life. Recovery is consequently a deeply serious subject for him; as it is for Rob. Indeed, Rob credits David with saving his life. 'That sounds very dramatic,' he says. 'But this compulsion to do whatever I have done is still with me. It might return tomorrow, it might return tonight, and I might still die.' David, meanwhile, talks of Rob as a surrogate son and is immensely proud of his huge and successful effort to leave drink and drugs behind forever. It's an effort that has transformed Rob's life: the European tour that began with Rob saying how much he hated touring ended with him hardly able to believe how much he was enjoying himself. 'I'm on stage going, “I'm ace,”' he laughed. 'And there's 13,000 people going, “We agree.” What could be better than that?'

On the road, David is there for Rob at all times. On his tour bus, in his dressing room, back in his hotel suite after the gig, which is where Rob goes these days, rather than out to the parties organised in his name in the clubs. David will join the star drinking Evian or tea, playing a round of Uno, the children's card game that was Rob's obsession earlier this year; or one of the other games Rob likes to instigate and, ideally, win. Word association is one favourite. The Hat Game, where the names of famous people are put in a hat and two teams have to guess who their representative is impersonating, is another.

'I always say to Rob,' David says, '“If you wanted an elephant to keep you amused backstage, I'd go and find a fu*king elephant." It sounds very pandering, but it's not, because at the end of the day, come nine o'clock at night, he's got to get up there and do his stuff. The boss gets looked after because the boss delivers the bacon.'

Default Tim Clark (Manager)



Tim is a founder partner, along with David Enthoven, of ie: music, the artiste management company that represents Robbie Williams, Archive, Sia & Craig Armstrong, and includes wholly owned subsidiaries, film house Hangman Studios and Hangman Films.

He started his career at Island Records, the label founded by his mentor, the legendary Chris Blackwell. He learnt every facet of the music business while working for Chris and has been fortunate to work with some of the greatest artistes of the past 35 years, including Bob Marley, Free, King Crimson, Nick Drake, Roxy Music, Cat Stevens, Massive Attack and, of course, Robbie Williams.

Starting as an apprentice, he became managing director in 1976
In 1992 he formed IE: Music with David Enthoven, which has become one of the most successful artiste management companies in the UK. He is also a director of Robbie Williams’ company, The In Good Company Co.

Tim is widely respected throughout the music industry for his innovative approach to music management and his support of digital media. He is also a vice president of UNICEF and supports Robbie Williams’ substantial contributions to that organisation.

One of Tim’s outstanding contributions has been the making of the short film on trafficking, More Precious than Gold. Tim secured the support of Century Films and Robbie Williams, who presented and narrated the film. Launched in 2003, this film continues to be used globally to raise awareness of the issue of trafficking, and it is now used as a training resource by police services and authorities in the UK in their work against human trafficking.
Recently, Tim was involved in developing Soccer Aid for UNICEF. This was an unprecedented opportunity for UNICEF to reach a primetime television audience, raising over £2.5million in the process.
Tim has travelled to Mozambique and Cambodia to see UNICEF’s work in the field.

Default Josie Cliff (PA)



Robbie´s PA for several years now and a past master at keeping people on hold. It's Josie's job to make sure that only the very select few get through to Robbie. One of Josie's affectionate monikers for her boss is 'the little prince'. In September 2003 Robbie sang at Josie´s wedding to director/producer Lee Lodge.

(Extract below taken from Mark Mccrum.com)

The second main figure in Rob's immediate world is his PA Josie Cliff, whom observant fans may spot boogying enthusiastically on the edge of the stage during gigs, don't be fooled by her engaging giggle and friendly manner into thinking that she is anything other than a Ph.D in the dark arts of people management. 'She's all give and I'm all take,' says Rob; but she manages him as skilfully as a top trainer manages a thoroughbred horse. She is at his beck and call, yes; she does fill his fridge and run out to buy him and his friends takeaways and help him choose furniture for his new house, and all the rest; but watch her over several weeks, and you see how she quietly gets her way. With Rob, often; with those close to Rob, generally; with those wanting to get close to Rob, almost always


Josie Cliff has a job that most people would envy, working as a Personal Assistant to an internationally renowned pop star, travelling the world, and spending a lot of time in Los Angeles - but it is no ordinary 9-5 job. Josie is lucky that her husband Lee Lodge also works for the same employer as a producer for his live shows. In fact, that very same employer – a man called Robbie Williams – sung at their wedding, big-hearted Rob played for just 60 people on Josie and Lee’s big day. Backed by just an acoustic guitar, Robbie sang a medley of his hits, including the classic Angels, as the couple got wed in a picturesque mountain-top setting in Malibu, California, in September 2003. The show was a thank you to his devoted long time aide, who is on call for Robbie 24 hours a day and even stays at the star's home when he's living in America.

In Somebody, Someday ( written by Marc McCrum) Josie is quoted as saying” You look at it all and think it’s all so relaxed, such good fun, but you’re still ploughing away doing the best job you possibly can. That’s what he (RW) makes you feel, that you want to do your best…”Josie says “Robbie Williams first came to ie:music in 1996; things have not been the same since, working with Robbie is a challenge and a joy for all those who are involved with his numerous projects. For me, every single day is a privilege.”

Josie is more than just involved in Robbie’s professional life; she has the unenviable task of making sure Robbie is where he should be, even to the point of accompanying him to the dentist. Josie is always seen quietly in the background in documentaries, and sometimes bouncing away at the side of the stage during his performances, she often has to scold Robbie and pal Jonny for their backstage schoolboy antics .Robbie often turns to her during interviews if unsure about something, and Josie is always there with the answer.

Jonathan Wilkes says of Josie “She has to take a lot of **** and she’s brilliant at her job. I can’t think of anyone else that could do it…” They say that behind every successful man there is a woman…For the time being at least the woman behind Robbie Williams is Josie Cliff.

Default Andy Franks (Tour Manager)



Andy “Franksy” Franks, also known as “The Prince of Darkness” (because he wears black clothing exclusively) has been his tour manager since 1997. Arguably, Franks has the most glamorous, most frustrating, most complicated, most fascinating job on earth, and is also a production management specialist.

Before becoming one of the VIP´s in Robbie´s professional entourage, Franks use to be the tour manager for Depeche Mode back in the 80's and 90's and still is when he isn’t working for Rob, He also has Bush and Madness under his belt.

He is originally from Bristol, was in a band called Wild Beasts, he was the bassist and vocalist.
Since starting out in the industry 27 years ago, Andy has set up and produced live shows for acts including Depeche Mode, Madness and Moby. More recently he has worked with Robbie Williams and Coldplay and is currently working as a UK management consultant for Coldplay’s manager Dave Holmes, looking after the careers of the Scissor Sisters and Anthony and the Johnsons.
