The new partners – three men and three women – include five booking agents based in its LA office and one in New York.
Music agents newly elevated to ICM partners are Scott Mantell, the agency’s head of international touring, who joined as an assistant in 2003 and now represents acts including Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, D’Angelo and Cyndi Lauper, and Adam Ginivisian, who works across both comedy and concerts and becomes ICM’s youngest partner.
“We are proud to welcome these outstanding agents into our partnership”
Also promoted are comedy agent Ayala Cohen, literary agents Hrishi Desai and Kathleen Remington and physical production agent (representing ‘below-the-line’ clients such as costume designers and cinematographers) Lara Sackett.
“We are proud to welcome these outstanding agents into our partnership,” the agency says in a statement. “Each has earned their ascension through a passion for advancing the careers of our clients, dedication to teamwork and great taste.
“They each make a unique and important contribution to our culture, which is a major factor in their elevation to partner.”
