WHO WE ARE
Managed by Ember is an Amsterdam-based boutique management agency for a variety of talents in the entertainment industry. When Ruben Bannet and Jillis Tukker founded the company early 2018, they did so with the aim to work with talent in multiple disciplines and started representing musicians (artists, producers and songwriters), actors, film directors and digital creators. As every project has different needs and points of attention, Managed by Ember provides a bespoke, closely involved and informal management service to all of the talented individuals they represent. With an entrepreneurial point of view, Managed by Ember is a home to all types of talent with whom management passionately shares their dreams and ambitions, but support them in their worries and insecurities alike.
Late 2019 Ruben and Jillis extended their business by founding their affiliated audiovisual production company Zember Films. Since then several crossovers between Managed by Ember’s roster and Zember Films have been made.
"An ember is a glowing, hot coal made of greatly heated wood, coal, or other carbon-based material that remain after, or sometimes precede, a fire. Embers can glow very hot, sometimes as hot as the fire which created them. They radiate a substantial amount of heat long after the fire has been extinguished, and can rekindle a fire that is thought to be completely extinguished."

"With a former musical actress as mother and a dad who have worked for ages at the national broadcast channels, I might got inspired by them in doing what I do today. As a child the ambiances of venues like Carré, the Arena and Ahoy always have enchanted me deeply. In 2017 I crossed paths with old friend Ruben Bannet and started entrepreneuring behind the scenes."

"After studying economics and business for a year, I started working and touring as a musician as part of the bands Radio Eliza and Avi On Fire. With my friend Jillis Tukker as my partner I found a way to combine my passion for music with entrepreneurship in the creative industry, and working with the best creative talent there is has been our ambition ever since."
