Creative Artists Agency (CAA) has completed its deal to acquire ICM Partners (ICM).
“Today marks a new chapter in the history of our company, positioning us better than ever to deliver extraordinary opportunities for many of the world’s preeminent artists, athletes, thought leaders, brands, and organizations in entertainment, sports, and culture,” says CAA’s Co-Chairmen Kevin Huvane, Bryan Lourd, and Richard Lovett. “We are thrilled to welcome our new ICM colleagues to CAA, and look forward to combining their expertise, relationships, and resources with those of our agents and executives around the world. Our diverse range of clients who entertain and inspire large global audiences have never been in more demand, nor have their opportunities been greater. With today’s addition of our new colleagues, the scope of possibilities for helping clients achieve their goals is limitless.”
The combination of CAA and ICM now reflects more than 3,200 total employees operating in 25 countries worldwide. In addition to massive growth in other departments, CAA’s reach grows tremendously in music booking. CAA now books more than 30,000 music and comedy shows each year for genres spanning pop, rock, country, urban, Latin, EDM, and more. The Touring department also services clients through its brand partnerships, marketing, private events, and crossover divisions.
“Combining with the best-in-class agency to build an even greater representation company for our clients and our colleagues is the core strategic reason for this move. We couldn’t be more enthusiastic about our future together, and are energized by the sophisticated, forward-thinking representation we offer clients. This is the ideal next step for our companies,” shares ICM’s Chris Silbermann and Ted Chervin.
