The former 2 For the Road Events director becomes the latest agent to take a desk in the London-based agency's expanding offices
By Gordon Masson on 27 Nov 2017
Clementine Bunel, the agent who has helped shape the live careers of artists including Stromae, Benjamin Clementine, Ibibio Sound Machine, Songhoy Blues and Parcels, has departed ATC Live to take up a new role at Coda Agency.
Bunel started her new job last week and IQ understands that she is taking a number of acts on her roster to Coda. Prior to joining ATC in 2015, Bunel ran her own successful agency, 2 For the Road Events Ltd, which combined a booking agency, promoter and creative production team.
Coda partner Rob Challice says, “We’re very excited to have Clementine join Coda; she is very well respected across the business and brings something extra to our team.”
“I look forward to being part of such a forward thinking company”
ATC Live’s Alex Bruford comments, “Clementine is a fantastic agent and we wish her the best of luck with the next chapter of her career.”
For her part, Bunel tells IQ, “I enjoyed a fantastic two and a half years being part of ATC and working with inspirational people such as Alex Bruford and my colleague Cecile Communal. I made many lifelong friends when I was at ATC and I will miss seeing them on a daily basis.”
She adds: “I’m very excited to work with the likes of Natasha Bent, Rob Challice, Tom Schroeder and Alex Hardee and all the other amazing agents around the world at Coda and Paradigm and I look forward to being part of such a forward-thinking company and using their resources to enhance the services I can offer to my artist clients.”
