“ I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.”
– Maya Angelou

Danielle Matte – born and raised in Winnipeg, MB, fled the city in 2002 to venture to the country’s capital city for entertainment – Toronto, ON. Splitting time between completing a Business Management Degree at the University of Western Ontario and dabbling into the professional dance industry, Danielle broke her way into the business side of the entertainment industry almost overnight. Having worked with clients such as, Disney Canada, Sears Canada, Bell Mobility Celebrity Gala, Rogers, REMAX,The Wynford Group, and the Children’s Aid Foundation, to Redken, Danielle’s work quickly became a widespread name.

After the completion of her degree, with a pocketbook of experience behind her, she recognized a void within the industry; between corporate professionals within the entertainment industry and individual artists. And thus, she founded MOI Artist Management. Recognizing the value of Business within Entertainment has been the key to MOI’s foundation. MOI’s mission is to promote, package, protect and advance the careers of our clients through strong alliances between management and talent. MOI offers career advice, networking, publicity, fund raising, branding, and image creation. These essential services are ensured through organization, enthusiasm and true dedication from our employees. To achieve success, MOI must nurture shared visions between management and talent and above all, believe in the artistic value of each and every client.

Spearheading the launch of company with clients, internationally recognized Linda Garneau, and Helix Dance Project, Danny Davalos (the owner of OIP Dance Centre and assistant to Luther Brown), and Argo’s Host and Choreographer Faye Rauw, quickly brought MOI Management to a prominent front in the Industry. After retaining singer/songwriter and music producer Chad James, came an opportunity hit the table to merge the music division of the company with The Management Trust – headed up by the Legendary Jake Gold (The Tragically Hip, Canadian Idol). As the representative heading up the Producer Management division of The Management Trust, she manages the career’s of various Internationally recognized and multi platinum selling Producers, found at www.mgmtrust.ca.
Her continuous passion for Entertainment has prompted opportunities with Canadian National PR company, Brill Communications, headed up by Desia Brill. Danielle’s alliance with Brill Communications has allowed her to establish successful business ventures during Toronto’s Fashion Week for the past number of seasons.

Integrity, perseverance and competence enhanced with a precise understanding of the value of talent in entertainment has earned MOI a well respected reputation in its field. Representing some of the Industry’s best, MOI’s boundaries are seemingly invisible.
