After his success with boy band Bros, Craig left the band in early 1989 after suffering from ME[4] to focus on songwriting and producing. He was subsequently nominated for an Ivor Novello Award for the hit single "Don’t Worry" by Kim Appleby, whom he also managed. At the age of 25, Logan joined EMI Music as VP of International, which he ran for three years. During this time, he worked with Robbie Williams, Tina Turner and Garth Brooks.

In 1999, Logan left EMI to work with artist manager Roger Davies. He went on to oversee worldwide tours and releases for acts including Tina Turner, Sade, Joe Cocker and M People before meeting Pink, whom he signed and co-managed with Davies for several years.

In 2006, Logan joined SonyBMG UK (now Sony Music) as the Managing Director of the RCA Label Group.
