Invictus Entertainment Group is the premier catalyst for merging arts, culture and commerce. A collective of elite experts in the entertainment industry offering an extensive spectrum of services. With over 700 promoted and produced shows yearly, Invictus has forged solid, reliable relationships. These relationships include agencies, management companies, artists and buildings. Invictus boasts the most extensive secondary and tertiary market touring alliance, greatly expanding the North American market base for international touring.
Started in 2011, by Jim Cressman, with the vision to form a one of a kind artist services company – dedicated to facilitating the unconquerable artistic spirit. His past had prepared him for this moment, at 16 he convinced a radio station to allow him to do an on-air shift, later a stint in pro boxing, and by 30 he had convinced the top promoter in Canada to partner with him. Never being one to succumb to a challenge, Cressman developed his 360 model with fervor and evolved his portfolio further by leading Invictus Entertainment into Pollstar’s Top 100 Promoters in the World list.
