Michael Foster, co-chairman of International Creative Management’s London office, is ankling the agency at the beginning of 1998 to become CEO of television and film of the new Ginger Media Group, which recently acquired Virgin Radio.
“Michael Foster has played an important role in ICM’s growth into the U.K.’s largest talent agency,” said ICM Ltd. chairman Duncan Heath. “Although we are sorry to lose such a valued friend and colleague, we fully understand his decision to accept this remarkable opportunity and challenge. We wish him much success.”
When ICM merged its two London offices — International Creative Management Ltd. and ICM Duncan Associates Ltd. — in 1991, Foster was named managing director of the new entity, ICM Ltd.
