NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — ICM has picked up former WMA veteran Betsy Berg to head up their new lecture division.
Berg had spent 18 years at WMA and run the agency's own lecture division until she was displaced by the Endeavor merger. A number of Berg's clients will make the jump with her, including Joy Behar, Richard Branson, Quincy Jones, Lily Tomlin, Ty Pennington, Bill Nye, Jane Pauley, Chris Gardner, Maria Bartiromo, Julie Andrews, Harry Belafonte, Cynthia Nixon and Jesse Jackson, Variety said.
Berg will also oversee ICM's percentage of their 2006 pact with the American Program Bureau along with APB chairman-CEO Robert P. Walker.
Berg will start immediately at her new position and work out of ICM's New York offices. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
