Bonaelamour tweeted " super interesting that Women Ny and Paris will now be owned by the same company that has a stake in Elite Paris/World and The Society"
Anyone have any news articles on this?

WWD ran this story.

Very interesting. Women/Elite/Society is clearly going to become the dominant agency now, especially now that IMG has been sold and who knows what will happen to it. There may be further consolidation to come as other agencies not only in NY but the other major markets try to compete.

Wow thanks. Not sure I understand why Society and Elite Paris wasn't enough. And how to keep them separate from Women. Who heads Women NY?

I think WME's main focus is IMG's sports division. I guess when it comes to IMG Models that ones that would highly benefit from the change are the socialites in their roster like Leigh Lezark, the supers and commercial models like Upton. I don't think it will interrupt their current flow if not make it more aggressive.

Also, it should be interesting for someone like Sky Ferreira considering she's with CAA, WME's biggest rival but at the same time with IMG.

The news of Elite expanding with Women is really exciting.

^ Interesting! That's why Kate Goodling, Miriam Haney & Lexi Boling are not yet placed in Paris because Ford is opening one

I guess that's why it shut down so many divisions a few months ago, in order to put their resources behind a Parisian office. Makes sense Ford would open an office there. Its last two affiliate agencies there kind of bit them in the butt. Elite Paris decided to cut off ties then moved all their girls out of Ford when it opened Society in NY. Oui also cut off ties and started placing its girls with Elite NY, though that relationship seems to have ended as well.
Without a sister agency in Paris, Ford NY could never become relevant again. Where will Ashleigh end up though?

I believe the former head booker at Ford LA, Natalie, is now the director at Ford NY. Also, last I heard Rowland was taking a hiatus.

IMG Models senior manager Kyle Hagler has joined rival modeling agency Next Management as president of its New York division, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Hagler will report to Next co-CEOs Faith Kates and Joel Wilkenfeld.

“Kyle is a brilliant manager and a creative strategist,” Kates said in a statement. “We are so excited to be working with him and look forward to his ideas and experience in this ever-changing industry. He is a star maker with an amazing eye for talent and such elegant style.

During his 17-year career at IMG, he launched the careers of Joan Smalls, Hilary Rhoda and Liya Kebede. He has also worked with Heidi Klum and Naomi Campbell and repped Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Karmen Pedaru. IMG Worldwide was acquired by WME last month after the Hollywood agency submitted a winning $2.35 billion bid.

Next, which also has offices in London, Paris, Milan, Los Angeles and Miami, represents major models such as Abbey Lee, Anja Rubik, Arizona Muse, Malgosia Bela, Meghan Collison, Suvi Koponen and Zuzanna Bijoch, as well as male models Andrés Velencoso, David Agbodji, Jon Kortajarena, Marlon Teixeira, and Larry Scott. The agency also represents other talent, including Alexa Chung, Lana Del Rey, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora and Lou Doillon. In 2011 it acquired the chef agency TwoTwelve Management, adding star chefs including Tom Colicchio, Geoffrey Zakarian, David Burke and Michael Symo to its roster.

Wow, successful courtship by Next. Intrigued if this will trigger a chain reaction at IMG.

Well Next could certainly use some strengthening. It will be interesting to see if some of those supers follow him.
