Dowley to head agency's consulting wing
The post-merger shakeout at WME continued last week with the departure of WMA vet Paul Bricault from the corporate marketing and consulting division.With Bricault’s departure, WME’s consulting wing will be headed by Mark Dowley, who had previously headed the Endeavor Marketing unit that operated separately from the tenpercentery. With the WMA-Endeavor merger, Dowley now serves as the inhouse head of the area for WME. Another WMA vet whose future remains undecided following the May merger is longtime Gotham TV agent Jim Griffin, whose clients include Regis Philbin and Emeril Legasse. Griffin’s contract is said to run through the end of the year. At present, insiders said he’s evaluating options for outside opportunities, but there are also ongoing discussions with WME toppers about a possible new contract for Griffin.
