Kabak ankles ICM for WMA

Wayne Kabak, a longtime agent and general counsel at ICM, will join the William Morris Agency’s New York office as a senior vice president on July 1.

Kabak will be a key part of agency management, and will also continue to represent book writers and broadcasters. Joining him as clients at Morris will be Kitty Kelley, Steve Young, newscasters Maria Bartiromo and Diane Diamond and former CIA director Robert Gates.

Kabak had been at ICM for 17 years, but the agency announced earlier this month that he would be leaving the agency and his duties would be handled out of its Los Angeles office by new senior VP and general counsel Richard Levy.

At WMA, Kabak will report to Alan Kannof, East Coast chief of operations and executive VP.

In a statement, Kannof said Kabak’s “combination of management skills and ‘on-the-line’ experience will make him a tremendous asset to our company.”

Before ICM, Kabak had been an associate in the entertainment department law firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison.
