(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Agency for the Performing Arts has announced two major steps up for the company, buying its own digs in Beverly Hills and opening a satellite office in New York City in January.
“We’re stepping out and making a huge investment in our future. This is a company on the move, and it’s time to own our address,” APA President Jim Gosnell told Variety. The company will leave its currently-leased HQ in July of next year.
The full-service agency, which has nearly tripled its business in the past year, recently hired four new agents and promoted three assistants to agent status, bringing its total agent roster to about 42. Gosnell told the magazine that another 15 agents will be hired over the next two to three years.
APA is reportedly paying in the low- to mid-eight figure range for the new 30,000-square-foot home, and has retained architectural firm AREA to renovate the façade and interior of the five-story building.
APA’s New York satellite office, which will be opening much sooner than the new Beverly Hills office, will be talking with many potential hires in the coming days, according to Variety. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
