Statement just posted by Kathryn Enticott, who has flown the coop:
To avoid further speculation, I wanted to make my own announcement about my on-going relationship with IMG Artists and the start of my new company, Enticott Music Management.
I have worked for IMG Artists for many years – in fact, almost half my life – and I am extremely grateful that the shareholders and COO, Lorna Aizlewood, were willing to find a way for me to manage artists in association with IMGA while having more autonomy in the way I work that includes me being able to accept new projects and challenges. I want to make it clear that EMM will continue to work with IMGA exclusively on the management of Semyon Bychkov, Alan Gilbert (for Europe), Franz Welser-Most, Leif Ove Andsnes, Nikolaj Znaider and Milos Karadaglic and will also consult to IMGA on the management of other artists.
I have huge admiration for the team at IMGA. Some of the greatest managers in the business work for the company and the sense of team spirit we enjoy has been excellent . Change is challenging but my colleagues and friends will have nothing but my support as IMGA evolves over the coming months and years.
