Simon Fuller is a successful British record and television producer.
When he discovered Paul Hardcastle in the mid-1980s he set out on his own and propelled Hardcastle to number one with his Vietnam war song, "19". After this success, he decided to name his management company Nineteen.
Fuller did not create the Spice Girls but he managed them through the peak of their success. The group disbanded shortly after his departure. He later managed former Spice Girls Emma Bunton and Victoria Beckham as well as Victoria's husband, soccer star David Beckham.
He attempted to create his own Spice Girls in 21st Century Girls ; however, that group failed to achieve the level of success he hoped.
Fuller was the manager and creator of S Club 7 (and still manages the follow-up group S Club 8) and is also the co-creator with Simon Cowell of television shows Pop Idol, American Idol, World Idol and other spin-offs. He also manages a number of artists who found fame through the shows including American Idol winners Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard and Fantasia Barrino, original Pop Idol Will Young and World Idol winner Kurt Nilsen.
