TORONTO (CelebrityAccess) — Talent agency APA is the latest to announce plans to open an office in Toronto, tapping former Agency Group veterans Ralph James and Jack Ross to oversee the new operation.
"It's an honor to be in business with such accomplished and respected industry vets as Ralph and Jack," commented Gosnell and Martin in a joint statement. "We're very excited to be investing in Canadian artists and The City of Toronto as we continue to expand APA's global footprint."
Also joining APA's new Toronto office will be former UTA music agents Stefanie Purificati and Mike Graham.
APA's new office follows similar moves by other agencies such as Paradigm, who also announced this week that they they were opening an office in the Canadian city. The new offices will occupy a space created by the closure of United Talent's office in Toronto, which the agency announced earlier this year. Messrs. Ross and James led UTA's Toronto operation.
