Ford was a second tier agency before Paul came. I guess he didn't make it profitable but he did really legitimized the agency in the NY market and it actually became a competitor to the big names. Ford is going to need to poach some good bookers with good girls or they'll become irrelevant very quickly.

I had the same thought. I'm still trying to process that she's with IMG.

You can expect more switches from ford... even if girls have been unhappy under PR's crazy direction, mother agents don't accept their girls being represented by a convention scout from LA, a Plus size booker and an agent freshly arrived from Spain, from what I hear... This is a disaster...

What a disaster Ford is becoming.
Are the agents that went from Elite still at the agency? If they're leaving you can expect Julia Nobis and Kate King among others to follow.
It'll be interesting to see who they get to head the agency now. Katie Ford might have to come back in to stop the hemorrhaging but she's been out of the biz for years so she's not the answer.
Gary Dakis is the top plus size agent but I don't know if he has any connections with straight sized model clients.
It's really sad that the agency that really created modeling as a business and is the most important agency in the history of modeling is once again being gutted.
Those hedge fund owners better get their act together or else Ford will become Zoli of 2012/2013.

Juliana Schurig and Lara Mullen Ford->DNA.
I don't know how Ford can sustain itself when all its top girls and most promising young models are jumping ship, unless it wants to become a purely commercial modeling outfit.
