ICM Partners TV lit veteran Mark Gordon will relocate to the agency’s London office in the newly created role of head of international scripted television, Variety has learned. Gordon’s promotion marks the expansion of ICM’s scripted television presence across the pond.
Gordon will manage the agency’s international scripted business in his new position. He will work closely with London-based Pippa Lambert and the team of agents currently based in the U.K. office, plus Los Angeles-based Michael Kagan who will continue to lead the company’s domestic and international unscripted business.
“With the growing importance and complexity of the international marketplace, we made a strategic decision to expand our presence in the scripted television to provide a wider range of services to our clients in the U.K. and other international territories,” ICM’s board said in a joint statement. “Mark is a highly regarded senior packaging agent with deep relationships with studios, networks and talent and is uniquely qualified to take on this significant role.”
Gordon is known as a strategic thinker who takes an entrepreneurial approach with clients. He was named partner at ICM in 2012. He began his career at Broder Webb Chervin Silbermann, where he became an agent in 2005.
