Six ICM agents become partners

ICM Partners, a Los Angeles-based agency, has promoted six of its agents to partner status.

The new additions include five members from LA and one from New York, bringing the total up to 53 partners.

The six new partners are Ayala Cohen, Hrishi Desai, Adam Ginivisian, Scott Mantell, Kathleen Remington, and Lara Sackett.

Mantell (pictured left), the head of international touring for the concerts department, which he built from the ground up, represents clients ranging from Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, D’Angelo and Jon Bellion to Cyndi Lauper, Jill Scott, and Postmodern Jukebox.

Mantell also handles bookings outside of North America for ICM Partners’ clients such as J. Cole, Machine Gun Kelly and Melanie Martinez.

In addition to being instrumental in building ICM’s comedy business, Ginivisian (pictured right) is also co-head of the Los Angeles Trainee Program.

Cohen has been a talent executive and producer at Saturday Night Live and today she represents such comedy stars as Pete Davidson, Fortune Feimster, Amy Landecker, Jay Pharoah, Chris Redd and Cecily Strong.

ICM Partners said: “We are proud to welcome these outstanding agents into our partnership. Each has earned their ascension through a passion for advancing the careers of our clients, dedication to teamwork and great taste.

“They each make a unique and important contribution to our culture, which is a major factor in their elevation to partner.”
