Walker to head ICM division

Exec to o'see Gotham-based clients

Bart Walker has been upped to head of Intl. Creative Management’s motion picture division in New York.

The appointment, announced by ICM chairman and CEO Jeff Berg, will place Walker atop an office with a diverse list of New York-based motion picture clients. Berg called Walker “an experienced agent whose intelligence and judgment have been powerful factors in ICM’s successes of the past decade.”

For the last nine years, Walker has worked at ICM, most recently as VP, international, representing literary clients as well as securing financing and distribution for their films. Walker most recently was instrumental in structuring a 10-picture financing and distribution arrangement between MGM and Francis Ford Coppola.

Walker also had previously served as exec veepee of Cinecom Entertainment Group, an indie distribution company.

Indie protection focus

“Many New York artists aren’t studio oriented,” Walker said, “and many aren’t assignment oriented. In the past, I’ve focused on filmmakers who created their own material, made their own movies. Now, the horizon is much broader than that, but I want to organize the New York office so they continue to get that attention whether they work with the studios or with the independents.”

Walker’s ties to Gotham stretch back to the mid-’80s, when as an attorney in business affairs, he served under then-ICM co-owner and now vice chairman Sam Cohn.
