A tribute to Chris Huvane and the importance of mental health awareness
The talent manager and former magazine editor tragically took his own life last month. Part of his legacy is the urgent work that must be done around mental illness

As a partner at Management 360, Huvane was known across multiple creative industries as one of the most talented and successful people in the business. Not only that, but also one of the nicest. Born in 1974 in New York, he became a manager in 2010. Prior to that, he was GQ Senior West Coast Editor, starting his career in HBH Public Relations.
To say Huvane was an influence is to diminish the unique way he worked; with a brilliant, inclusive kindness rather than with bombast and ego. Intuitive, creative, and ‘lionhearted’.
‘We are devastated beyond words, Chris was simply “the best of the best”,’ Management 360 partners said in a statement. ‘A brilliant manager, consummate colleague and friend, a rock of our company and our culture, beloved by every single person who ever met him. It’s an incalculable loss and our hearts go out to his family and friends. We are all better for having known Chris, and we commit to honouring his legacy every day forward.’
