ICM Partners has promoted Danielle Beckford, Kyle Kernohan and Liz Pantone to agents in its concerts department.
The promotions, which are effective immediately, see all three will report to concerts department heads (and agency partners) Steve Levine, Rob Prinz and Mark Siegel.
Beckford, based in ICM’s New York office, joined the agency as an intern while studying for her masters at Carnegie Mellon University. After graduating, she began her full-time position at ICM Partners as Mark Siegel’s assistant and was later promoted to concerts department coordinator.
“Danielle, Kyle and Liz have each proven to be great assets to the department”
Kernohan, based in the Los Angeles office, joined ICM as an intern in June 2012. He started his career as an assistant in the comedy touring department before moving to the urban music department in April 2013. He was promoted to coordinator in February 2016, and for the past year has been a key member of ICM’s festival booking staff.
Pantone, based in, and from, New York, began her career at The Agency Group, and joined ICM as an assistant to Siegel in 2013. She was later promoted to coordinator.
“Danielle, Kyle and Liz have each proven to be great assets to the department and we look forward to the strong careers they each have ahead of them,” say Levine, Prinz and Siegel in a joint statement.
