Oz’s AEG sets up int’l unit in L.A.

Agency will bring more Australian talent to U.S.

SYDNEY — Australia’s Artist & Entertainment Group has launched an international management division in Los Angeles, headed by ex-pat Aussie Christine Martin.

Martin will identify opportunities for talent repped by AEG’s Encompass Management, which houses a large stable of actors, presenters, writers, directors, producers, crew, voiceover artists and musicians.

“Our goal is to develop the most effective gateway into the U.S. marketplace and for the U.S. industry to Australia,” AEG chief exec Ben Macpherson said. “A lot of Australian artists are working on the world stage but very few of them have been repped by an Australian management company.”

Martin has 15 years’ experience in the entertainment biz in the U.S., U.K. and Australia as a TV and theater producer and in artist management. She is a co-founder of New York-based Martin Management, which repped various comedians, actors and film and TV writers; it was acquired in 1998 by Hollywood’s Morra, Brezner, Steinberg & Tennenbaum.

“Initially, Christine will be our hands, eyes and ears to the L.A. market, providing a great platform for our clients to enter the U.S. industry,” Macpherson said.

Alan Wilson has been named head of Encompass’ new domestic talent management division in Oz in a restructuring that follows the exit of Encompass CEO Mark Morrissey, who has set up his own management shingle.
