EXCLUSIVE: I’ve learned that the following email is going out to WME staff from Dave Wirtschafter this week today:

Wirtschafter_Dave09I want to let all of you know that moving forward I have decided to remove the Co-CEO portion of my title. I will continue on as a Board member, Partner, and most importantly, agent.

It was my intention to accept the position to help us through the merger, and now eight months later, I am proud to say we are well on the way to realizing the potential we saw for the two combined entities. My decision is reflective of both my belief in the leadership of Ari and Patrick and our collective vision for the future.

This decision allows me to focus on what I truly love to do, creating and maximizing opportunities for our clients whose interests and ambitions cross the many divisions of this incredible company.

I am available if you have any questions.
