ICM Partners has hired former WME music agent Paul Gongaware.
“I’m very happy to have Paul join us in our growing concerts department and specifically the electronic space which we feel will rebound particularly strong post pandemic,” says Rob Prinz, worldwide head of concerts at ICM Partners.
Gongaware will join Simon Clarkson, who came to ICM Partners in August to head up its domestic Electronic Music Department. Clarkson brought with him several clients including Skrillex, Alison Wonderland, AlunaGeorge, and San Holo. Together they will complement the EMD team at Primary Talent International and the “Decked Out” dance division.
“In a tumultuous time in the live music business, we are focused on growing the department and preparing with our clients for a return to dance floors and stages globally,” says Clarkson, head of electronic music at ICM Partners.
