Another New York manager and two managerial staff have left the ailing artists’ agency.

Andrew Elsesser, Special Projects Manager, left IMG yesterday and starts today at Lincoln Center as Temporary Associate Director of Programming.  Andrew was an experienced, well-liked manager who used to work with Audra McDonald, Renee Fleming, Alan Gilbert, John Adams and Thomas Ades.

Also gone are Stephanie Torok, Managerial Associate, who has joined the New World Symphony, and Alexander Koster, Booking Associate, who has gone to law school.  Alex was the last junior left from the Elizabeth Sobol era. All remaining junior staff have received limited training, and most are in their first 12 months.

Here’s who’s left:

UPDATE: Message from Alexander Koster:

I am still at IMG and will remain with the company into the summer. IMG has been very supportive of my decision to go to school in the fall.

    Always enjoyed working with Alex, green when he started but learned fast and was great to work with.
