The scout from Marilyn as well as one of their bigger bookers is at Society for sure, along with others from Next, Major and One.

Now hearing that Paul Rowland is out at Ford. Major re-shuffling going on again. :-/

I think it is time people to realise that these people "moving" give to themselves much more imprtance than the business gives to them.

Since a few years that some transfer of people has been really noisy, did the ranking of the agencies changed?

Rowland is the biggest joke in all...a guy who never did anything else than to leave big debts to all agencies he left, and still people looking at him like a hero...

Model bookers gone bad
Quote:
A TOP London model agent who has had Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer and Cindy Crawford on his books today spoke of his “shock and betrayal” after a rogue employee lured rising stars to a rival firm.

Chris Owen, co-founder of Covent Garden-based Premier Model Management, sued “super-booker” John Bruce after he was found to be poaching models and plundering confidential data.

Bruce, himself an ex-model and star of Channel 4’s series The Model Agency, faces financial ruin after a High Court judge ruled he violated his employment contract and cheated Premier of more than £20,000 in travel expenses.

Mr Owen sacked Bruce in July when the firm found out he had secretly set up a rival agency with his partner, Paulo Ribeiro, nine months earlier.

The pair poached models such as Brazil’s Talita Correa to the new firm, Paulo Ribeiro Management, or PRM, of which Bruce was a director and shareholder.

When Mr Owen became suspicious he asked his brother Michael to help investigate his star booker, who generated a third of the agency’s income.

Mr Owen, 60, who founded Premier with his sister,

Carole White, in 1981, said: “Michael went through his emails, and discovered all sorts of things. He was plundering our data and defrauding us.”

The email trawl revealed Bruce had booked flights for himself all over the world including to New York, Miami and Brazil, under the pretence of official Premier business, as well stealing information.

Mr Owen said: “We were absolutely shocked by the disloyalty, his sense of entitlement and the betrayal.

"We felt gutted, and really disappointed. Not only that John had actually done this but that he was in denial about it.”

After sacking Bruce for gross misconduct, the company served papers in the High Court claiming damages.

Yesterday Judge Simon Crookenden QC ruled that Bruce had breached his employment contract and cheated Premier of more than £20,000 in travel expenses.

Bruce was ordered to pay back the fiddled expenses as well as tens of thousands of pounds in compensation for jobs that went to PRM instead of Premier. He also faces a legal bill estimated at £100,000.

The judge issued an injunction forbidding him from soliciting or engaging any of Premier’s present staff or endeavouring to canvass or entice away any model who has been represented by the agency since August 1, 2001.

Bruce was also banned from disclosing any confidential information he had obtained from Premier.

Bruce claimed he never intended to harm Premier, and that he did not know his partner had made him a director and 50 per cent shareholder of the new firm.

When agencies get models editorials- is it always low paid and even free also? I am just wondering when agencies do it plus I noticed though am not sure that top photographers such as the likes of Terry Richardson also do tests with models like photograph models just because they want to- I am assuming they go through an agency when doing this, do they have to pay or can they get the model for free from the agency? Do agencies some times give models free work for exposure?

So who's at FORD now if Rowland is out? Many, many models have left and went elsewhere.

Is Marilyn undergoing major switches too, like at Ford? I'm curious if some of their other girls will jump ship too? Anyone know anything about this?

Another new NYC agency. Bookers include Olga and Joseph from the (completely ridiculous) "Network".
