Resolution Agent Steve Alexander Lands at ICM Partners
A week after his sudden departure from Jeff Berg’s Resolution, Steve Alexander has landed at the agency Berg once led, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. THR reported last week that he would likely land at ICM Partners, and now he is taking much of his client roster with him, including David Duchovny, Tatiana Maslany and Joy Bryant.
“My focus always has been to provide my clients with the best opportunities to enrich their careers,” Alexander said in a statement. “With my new colleagues at ICM Partners, I believe that I can offer clients personal, unparalleled representation across every area of the business.”
Alexander is joining ICM as a partner, bringing the agency’s total to 39. ICM launched its unique partnership structure in 2012 after buying out the management (which included chairman Berg). The hire is a major coup for the agency, as Alexander is a respected veteran agent with a proven ability to sign top talent.
Over a decade at CAA, he represented marquee talent including Heath Ledger, Natalie Portman, Jared Leto and Jeff Bridges. He left the agent business in 2008 to become a producer, working for Atlas Entertainment for three years. When word spread in late 2012 that he was looking to get back into the representation game, he was courted by multiple major agencies but decided on the fledgling Resolution as it launched in early 2013. Last week he became one of its high-profile exits, joining COO Jeff Franklin, Dennis Kim, Leigh Brillstein, Adam Kanter and Martin Spencer.
“Through his years as an agent, executive and manager, Steve has solidified a reputation in the industry as a passionate advocate for his clients and as a collaborative partner,” ICM’s partnership said in a joint statement. “We are pleased to welcome him to ICM Partners.”
