Artist manager Simon Renshaw has left the Firm and started his own company, Los Angeles-based Strategic Artist Management. He brings with him clients that include the Dixie Chicks, Clay Aiken, Anastacia and Miranda Lambert.

Also joining Renshaw are a number of former Firm employees, including JoAnn Burnside, Marion Kraft, Kat Darnell, Yamile Fernandez and Natalie Miller, some of whom left the Firm when it laid off staffers a few weeks ago.

Renshaw joined the Firm four years ago, bringing the Dixie Chicks with him.

In a statement, the Firm wishes Renshaw the best, adding, "We look forward to fighting the good fight together again in some capacity in the future."
