Biz news: Ex-HarrisonParrott director beds down with IMGmain
Jennifer Spencer, who quit HP last year to manage Ivan Fischer’s orchestra tours, has formed a loose arrangement to operate as a boutique agent within IMG.
Frying pan to fire alarm?
The official version: In May 2017, a lunch with fellow artist manager Kathryn Enticott inspired a plan for Jenny to return to Artist Management. Kathryn could fully understand Jenny’s desire for a professional change. In 2014, she resigned from her role as IMG Artists’ Managing Director of Artist Management to found Enticott Music Management. Through EMM, Kathryn continues to manage artists in association with IMGA, but this venture gives her the freedom to explore new projects and avenues within other areas of the performing arts. It is the best of both worlds: the flexibility and freedom of a boutique firm with the benefits that a global network, team and back-office functions provides.
