In 2013, he introduced Nico Network Elite, a bespoke destination management division for corporate clients and VIPs, which handles expertly curated experiences. As Forbes magazine recently said, "Whether you want to have Entourage-style nights, experience the best of the best with your closest friends, celebrate your birthday with a private performance by your favorite rock star or hop on a helicopter to an exquisite surfing break, there is only one man to call in this sprawling town of hush-hush elite parties and secret handshakes — Nico Golfar.”

Born in London, Nico first made his mark in entertainment marketing, representing record labels, such as Virgin Records, EMI and Go Discs. In addition, his move into radio promotions led him to represent such acts as Fat Boy Slim, The Housemartins and The Beautiful South.
After moving to Los Angeles in 1989, Nico joined Media Ventures Inc., working with composer Hans Zimmer, as his liaison to studio executives, producers and directors. During this period, he worked on over thirty major motion pictures, including “Backdraft”, “Broken Arrow”, “Days of Thunder”, “Regarding Henry”, “Romeo & Juliet”, “The Lion King” and “Thelma and Louise”. Nico was then recruited by Fox Music, (a division of News Corp.), where he developed unique proprietary systems for the production of film scores and soundtracks.
Nico Network is a boutique agency specializing in events, marketing and brand positioning, and has executed large-scale projects, product launches and seeding programs for clients, such as DDB LA, PopChips, Vespa, Depeche Mode, Best Buy, Microsoft, Tanqueray, Fleetwood Mac, Warner Brothers, Namco and Bentley, to name but a few. To date, the company’s most valuable asset continues to be an elite and specialized database of PR companies, marketing services, event services, strategic partners, influencers, celebrities and urbanites that Los Angeles Magazine has described as a “marketers dream.”
In addition to keeping his finger on the pulse of Hollywood, established music giants and the latest and greatest celebrities to land in LA or London, Nico’s circle also includes a highly touted selection of tastemakers, influencers and early adopters. This access allows Nico to design and implement custom experiences, programs, events and solutions that create unparalleled success for his clients and partners.
