Janklow & Nesbit Associates, the book agency that is home to a slew of top authors, has undergone a generational transition with partners Morton Janklow and Lynn Nesbit handing the reins to a new management team.
Janklow & Nesbit agents Luke Janklow, Anne Sibbald, Cullen Stanley, Bennett Ashley, PJ Mark and Dmitri Chitov have been upped to partner status. Luke Janklow, son of the company founder, will serve as president while Sibbald, Stanley and Ashley transition to managing directors.
Janklow and Nesbit will remain on board the agency and focus on repping authors. The agency’s roster of 1,500 scribes includes such notables as Anne Rice, Joan Didion, Jeffrey Eugenides, Tom Wolfe, David McCullough, Terry Brooks, Danielle Steel, Anderson Cooper and Michael Moore.
“We have an energetic and creative global team, always exploring new possibilities to serve our clients in innovative ways,” Luke Janklow said. “This new structure promotes greater expansion for the firm and builds upon our wonderful legacy.”
Morton Janklow founded the agency in 1977. Nesbit joined him as a partner in 1989.
