We hear that seven staff were sacked yesterday in the New York office as part of the company’s restructuring.
Three are senior agents – Kristin Lancino, Stefana Atlas and Allison Pybus – the other four are assistants.
Kristin Lancino (pictured) joined the agency as Executive Director in May 2013. Allison Pybus was Vice President, in charge of a long list of singers. Stefana Atlas, a former assistant to the conductor Kurt Masur, moved from Paris to New York last year to take the job.
It looks like a policy of last in, first out.
The knives come out at the London office next Friday.
As of now, IMG will be slimming down its services to many artists.
