EXCLUSIVE: In the first significant agency move of the new year, Meredith Wechter is exiting WME. Details are still being worked out, but I’m told the exit will be amicable and that she will become a manager. Wechter has been a partner at WME, and she is rumored to shortly be joining Michael Sugar’s Sugar23 as a manager and partner.
Wechter has a stellar list of longtime clients that includes Wonder Woman‘s Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Bryce Dallas Howard, Keanu Reeves, Diane Lane, Emmy-winning Succession star Jeremy Strong, Lily Rabe, Josh Gad, Alexandra Shipp, Sharon Horgan and numerous others.
