Half of the staff at IMG’s New York office have received notice of dismissal, we hear.
That’s 15 out of 29 employees.
UPDATE: IMG tell us the number is fewer, albeit severe. Two booking agents and one manager were dismissed a few days back. Today six associates were either given notice or placed on furlough. So that’ll be 9 out of 29, and counting.
The agents affected are reeling with shock, too dazed to return our calls.
IMG’s aim to be a major player in classical music lies in ashes, at least on the US scene.
