The Fordham Company
The Fordham Company never set out to be the biggest player in the Australian media, sport and entertainment management field when it was established three decades ago.
Its mission, though, was to be regarded as the best at what it does.
The agency’s proud record and its long list of achievements provides consummate evidence that its early aspirations are comfortably being met.
From company-owned offices near the Sydney CBD, The Fordham Company is a family created, owned and managed business that delivers a personalised, dedicated and experienced range of services to a top-tier clientele representing many of the nation’s most foremost personalities and achievers.
Whilst specialising in the provision of a core range of management services, The Fordham Company has established an enviable track record for its creativity in building brands and additional income opportunities for its clients.
According to one of the company’s many high-profile clients, the Nine Network’s Today Show co-host Lisa Wilkinson, “when you put yourself in the hands of the Fordhams, you just don’t get their expert management guidance, you become part of the family”.
Former Australian Test cricket captain and 1999 Australian of the Year Mark Taylor AO, a client of the company since 1994, pays The Fordham Company the ultimate accolade. “When I was first selected to captain Australia, I immediately recognised that I needed assistance in handling a raft of off-field appoaches and opportunities. The Fordhams have been my advisors ever since and have expertly helped plan and execute my ongoing career since my playing days ended”.
Denis Handlin AM, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of one of Australia’s most dynamic and successful companies, Sony Music Entertainment, considers The Fordham Company “one of the best at what it does. Its attention to detail, knowledge of the various fields in which it specialises and its thorough commitment to its clients puts The Fordham Company in a special category”.
John and Veronica Fordham, founders of the company, remain active in all phases of its operations.
Son Nick Fordham, who joined the business in 1997, is The Fordham Company’s Managing Director, his new-age enthusiasm and drive being paramount to its future development and growth.
