THR's Women in Entertainment 2012: Power 100
The first black woman to lead the talent department of a major agency, Bartlett was named a partner this year after ICM went through a management buyout. The 49-year-old added Glee star Chris Colfer to an impressive client list that includes Zoe Saldana, Josh Duhamel, Eric Stonestreet, Mira Sorvino, Michael Keaton and Elisha Cuthbert.
]Who gave me my first big break: [Manager] Joan Hyler. She hired me at William Morris on her desk. She taught me tenacity.
When I leave work each day, I can't wait to: See my dog, a Rhodesian ridgeback. He's a big boy. A hundred pounds. And my guy, Mike. We've been together 9½ years.
Favorite way to unwind on the weekend: Going to hear music, all different kinds. Music is one of those things I just feel can change your mood. I love seeing live performances. The last show that I saw that I enjoyed was Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch the Throne tour.
Can't get through my workday without: About 20 pieces of gum. Icebreakers Ice Cubes are a new discovery. They are unbelievable. It's the greatest gum ever.
Most surprising song on my iPod: "Moon River."
Totally starstruck around: Sports stars, especially football, like Ray Lewis.
Worst advice I've ever gotten: "You need to lose weight in order to succeed in this business."
Proudest moment this year: When the ICM partnership became a reality.
