We could not be prouder to recognize them as Partners.”

Catzel and Grant, who began in the agent trainee program in 2006, works with numerous production banners and notable on-air talent including, Karamo Brown, Gretchen Carlson, Soledad O’Brien, Meredith Vieira and Ali Wentworth.

Glazer joined the agency in 2011 as an assistant and rose quickly to become co-head of the theatrical department.

Johnson came to ICM as an assistant in the classical music department in 2001 and was upped to agent in 2003. She returned to ICM in 2014 after seven years at the Agency Group.

Shapiro has been with ICM since 2010. He represents such actors as Patrick Adams, Laverne Cox, Eugene Levy, Scott Foley, Walton Goggins, Regina Hall, Russell Hornsby, Holly Hunter, Bill Pullman, Michael Sheen, Ian Somerhalder, Christopher Walken and Jacki Weaver.
