Mandel leaves ICM to build talent firm


Long-time ICM agent Barbara Mandel is leaving the agency to form her own management company Artist Talent Management.

Mandel's clients will continue to be represented by ICM.

Commending Mandel on the job she had done since joining the agency in 1998, ICM chairman and CEO Jeffrey Berg said the agency looks forward to having a continuing relationship with her.

Said Mandel, "My years at ICM have been extremely rewarding, and I thank Jeff and my colleagues for being so supportive of my desire to form this new venture."
