In October 1974, he formed MPC Entertainment, now one of Britain’s foremost entertainment businesses. MPC specialises in artist management looking after many of the top personalities in the United Kingdom.

Michael Cohen, was also the forerunner of the private telephone industry in Great Britain. Empecey Telephones, the company he started, destroyed the single market that existed in Britain at the time. The company grew quickly – profits tripled every year for three years and Michael sold out at the tender age of 28. The experience gained from owning and supplying over 400 shops was invaluable and was put to good use marketing MPC Entertainment.
Over the past 35 years many artists have been started on the road to stardom by MPC. The policy of building new talent is one that still exists today, even though MPC has a list of household star names.
In 1999, MPC expanded into sport and now represents the World’s biggest sporting names in Cricket, Golf, Rugby and Swimming including Shane Warne, Jonah Lomu and Gary Player.
Michael says I still get a great deal of pleasure from seeing our clients grow from strength to strength, particularly as most of them started their careers at MPC – we will continue building for the future and always welcome new clients and developing new relationships.
