IMG’S MALE ORDER: For the first time in five years, IMG Models is back in the business of representing men.

Senior vice president and managing director Ivan Bart has lined up Kevin Apana and Greg Chan to help him build the division. Both are industry veterans and worked at Wilhelmina until February. The new hires now report to Bart.

The Hawaiian-born Apana started his career at IMG Models, where he managed Tyson Ballou, among others.

With Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss and Gisele Bündchen among its female roster, IMG Models has the shingle out to try to attract male models of comparable caliber. Bart said, “As a leader in the modeling industry, we felt the time was right to relaunch our men’s division.”

Thats really great news. I always knew that IMG always had the big names for female models so Im guessing they'll represent Clement, Simon N., Sean, Simone, Benjamin, etc. but Im also wondering what kinda of new faces they'll scout. its all pretty exciting

Yeah! That's great news. I knew they represented men before because I saw them in an old ANTMS show and thought it would be great if they came back to representing male models. I wonder if they're gonna build a power empire representing only top models as they do with females

It's going to be interesting who are they going to snag to put on the board. VNY, DNA & Willy should watch out.

Roman Larichev
is the 1st male model noticeable here signed with IMG: http://forums.thefashionspot.com/f12...ev-181197.html

^ that is great news! I'm wondering to what models will jump ship to IMG, definitely some of the bigger names to match the caliber of their women's board. IMG has done great things for their ladies so its good to know the men will be taken care off. Of course all the new faces they will scout will be amazing, and faces to watch.

Ryan Kennedy also switched from Wilhelmina to IMG. I'd imagine a lot of Wilhelmina boys are going to jump ship to IMG. Both Kevin and Greg had a great relationship with all the boys at Wilhelmina. Should be interesting...

I wonder if Clement will also go back to IMG. He really wouldn't need to, because he is taking over the world at Wilhelmina. Taylor Fuchs should go back to IMG. He needs some career recessitation. He was probably my favorite male model circa FW08.
