Curtis Brown has restructured its top management, with c.e.o. Jonathan Lloyd moving to the role of chairman of the agency, while Jonny Geller becomes joint chief executive officer alongside theatre, film and TV agent Ben Hall.
Geller and Hall will chair a management board of senior agents
across the departments, with Colin Lewis joining as finance director.
Geller, named Literary Agent of the Year at the 2012 Bookseller Industry
Awards, will remain head of the agency's books department.
The agency, which covers books, translation rights, theatre, film
and TV, actors and presenters, is also putting in place a new share
ownership scheme, meaning that all agents will have "a shareholding of
some degree", said Lloyd.
The agency is also planning to "broaden the scale" of Curtis Brown
Creative, the agency's creative writing course, which is headed by Anna
Davis. Lloyd said more details were to follow on that in the next month,
though he said: "It's been hugely successful, and there is a lot of
scope for us to expand that in all kinds of different directions."
The agency has also made further investment in its production company, CUBA.
