TORONTO (CelebrityAccess) — Veteran booking agent Richard Mills, who is currently Vice President of Performing Arts at the Feldman Agency, announced that he's retiring, for now at least.
“For 24 years Richard has grown with our TFA family personally and professionally. Anyone who is acquainted with Rich knows he has a heart of gold and cares deeply about people, their interests, careers and lives. We may miss seeing him day to day but we will always remain in touch. Professionally I’m certain our paths will cross again as he is a very creative person. Everyone at TFA thanks him for a lot of great years, laughs and hard work and we wish him nothing but the absolute best” says Jeff Craib, President, TFA
Mills joined the agency in 1993 when Feldman opened their Toronto offices and has been serving in as Vice President at the agency since 2008. During his long tenure at Feldman, Mills represented a roster that included The Tenors, Jesse Cook, Ron Sexsmith, Molly Johnson, Matt Dusk and the Cowboy Junkies among others.
As for Mills' plans for the future, he says he plans to spend some time with his family before considering new creative ventures.
Mills adds “I realize I need to make time to pursue some of the life goals that I set aside for when my kids were older. That time is now so I am officially retiring from my role as agent (only 30 years after I remarked I’d never be one). As you might imagine this is a tough choice to make as I truly love what I had the opportunity to do over almost 25 years of growth at TFA. I will be working on my tan, travelling and visiting friends before beginning a new chapter. “
