The William Morris Agency has unveiled the structure of its expanded international operations with the launch of a new London office. Ed Bicknell, former manager of Dire Straits, Mark Knopfler, Bryan Ferry, Gerry Rafferty and the Blue Nile, will serve as worldwide head of WMA's international music division.

Bicknell is joined by David Levy, from I.T.B.; as well as Adele Slater and Russell Warby, from the Agency Group; Nick Cave, Steve Hogan, and Solomon Parker from Concorde International Artists; Diana Richardson, from Sensible Events; and Hamish Crombie, who was already at William Morris.

The new music agents will work alongside WMA's existing literary and television agents in the agency's London office, which is overseen by Managing Director Caroline Michel.
