Yet another big chief walks out on IMGmain
While we were away, another foundation stone crumbled at the disintegrating artists management firm.
Libby Abrahams, senior VP and director of artist management in IMG Artists’ London office, has taken a walk. ‘The time has come to create a new venture within performing arts management,’ says her side of the statement. Which of her artists will go with her into the unknown?
Her list includes the violinist Sarah Chang; conductors Kristjan Järvi, Claus Peter Flor and Teodor Currentzis; pianist Helene Grimaud (whom she poached from Harrison Parrott) and the cellist Julian Lloyd Webber.
Libby’s resignation comes a month after conductors’ manager Sara Hunt decided to follow a different beat.
