EAST SUSSEX, UK (VIP-NEWS) — Booking agency K2 has announced the acquisition of another rival, this time the EGO Agency.
EGO founder Jim Morewood will move to K2 to become Senior Booking Agent there. His colleague Yerry Stetter will also move over, as will the entire EGO roster of artists, which includes Fear Factory, HIM, and Meshuggah.
“Yerry and I are delighted to be joining the formidable team at K2”, says Morewood. “We look forward to an exciting future with John [Jackson, K2 founder], having previously worked with him at the now legendary Helter Skelter Agency”.
Jackson adds: “I am delighted to be working with Jim again and we all look forward to welcoming Yerry to K2. Their combined skills will further enhance the strengths of K2 as the leading international hard rock booking agency”.
The acquisition of EGO, or the Eccentric Gent Organisation, follows last year’s purchase of Factory Music, which similarly saw a shift of staff and roster over to K2.
