ITM is a management and worldwide active touring agency with the main focus on hard rock and heavy metal music. The company is led by founder Frank Suepfle. In cooperation with our partner Rainer Hackl from „The Artist Management“ ITM is also an active player in the family entertainment and more mainstream projects (Earth, Wind & Fire, Ca Ira - musical written by Roger Waters, POLITA – 3 D Musical, Dan Sperry, etc.). The company is based in South Germany, straight between Karlsruhe and Heidelberg, close to Stuttgart (90 km) and Frankfurt (100 km).
In the age of 15 Frank Suepfle started his career as local promoter and soon began promoting national tours together with long term freelance partner and friend Mark Nowak who since today is still part of the ITM team. Some years later Frank joined forces with Jan Bayati and Sasa Erletic founding the new management and touring agency „Bottom Row Promotion“ in Karlsruhe. After many years of fruitful cooperation Frank left Bottom Row and stayed away from the music business for a couple of years. Early 2000 he started his comeback to the music business and soon became partner of ex Scorpions manager Uwe Block joining his BUZZ Agency in Frankfurt managing bands like swiss multi platinum act Gotthard. Unfortunately some years later Uwe Block passed away and Frank decided to start his own company „ITM International Touring and Management“ in 2007, managing acts like worldwide known heavy metal icon Udo Dirkschneider and finnish ESC 2006 winning act LORDI.
The policy of ITM is to work with bands where we personally love the music and where we can build up a great personal relationship. This is the best (and only) possibile motiviation to work passionate and successful. The goal to score is a trustful long term relationship and building a strong team with band and crew.
ITM acts have been awarded with multiple gold and platinum awards all over the world (Gotthard, Udo Dirkschneider, LORDI, etc.) and are touring worldwide.
