Agent leaves to form Artist Talent Management

ICM agent Barbara Mandel is parting ways with the tenpercentery to form Artist Talent Management. Mandel’s roster, which includes James L. Brooks, will continue to be repped by ICM.

“Barbara has done a terrific job for our clients over the years, and we look forward to having a strong relationship with her in her new role,” said ICM chairman and CEO Jeffrey Berg.
