ICM Partners is beefing up its TV presence in the U.K. in a major way, promoting partner Mark Gordon to head of International Scripted Television. He is relocating to the agency’s London office where, starting tomorrow, he will manage ICM’s international scripted television business. Gordon will be working with Los Angeles-based partner Michael Kagan, recently upped to head of International Television, who will continue to lead all aspects of the agency’s domestic and international nonscripted business. ICM Partners’ TV efforts in the UK had been overseen by Pippa Lambert who will now work with both Gordon on the scripted side and Kagan on the unscripted.
“With the growing importance and complexity of the international marketplace, we made a strategic decision to expand our presence in the scripted television to provide a wider range of services to our clients in the U.K. and other international territories,” the Board of ICM Partners said in a joint statement. “Mark is a highly regarded senior packaging agent with deep relationships with studios, networks and talent and is uniquely qualified to take on this significant role.”
Gordon began his career at Broder Webb Chervin Silbermann, where he became an agent in 2005. He segued to ICM following the agency’s merger with BWCS and was named partner in May of 2012, following the agency’s management buyout.
