Nine ICM Agents Depart

Nine more agents with International Creative Management have left the talent agency as fallout continues from ICM’s announcement last week that it is acquiring rival firm Broder Webb Chervin Silbermann Agency.

On Friday, agents Scott Arnovitz, Patty Detroit, Nancy Etz, Jill Gillett, Stacey Lubliner, Tanya Lopez, Dan Norton, Babette Perry and Steve Simons were all let go from ICM. They follow the exit of former ICM co-President Nancy Josephson.

Despite their firm becoming an acquisition, former Broder partners Chris Silbermann and Ted Chervin have ascended to co-heads of Worldwide Television for ICM.

“This acquisition is about growth,” ICM spokesman David Shane said in a statement Monday confirming the departures. “We stated that there would be some internal changes and this is an unfortunate side effect of any merger. We are excited about integrating BWCS into the agency and firmly believe the offer we provide our clients will be the best in the business. We are focused on the future.”
