This week, we’ve announced the acquisition of another agency:
After a prestigious career, Brie Burkeman has taken the hard decision to close the agency, Burkeman & Clarke, for family reasons and the company will cease trading on 31 March 2015. Clients and assets are being acquired by Ki Agency Ltd.
Brie has been an agent for books, film, theatre and television for 35 years. In 2009, she acquired Serafina Clarke’s agency.
Brie Burkeman said: “I am so sad to be going and to be having to close the company. If it wasn’t that I was leaving my dear clients in the more than capable hands of Meg Davis, it would make this decision much harder but I have to put my family first.”
Meg Davis, Managing Director of Ki, said, “Brie is a loyal, passionate and effective advocate for her clients. I’ve long been an admirer of her work as an agent, and proud to count myself among her many friends. I’m delighted that she’s chosen me to entrust her clients to and just wish we had the room to accommodate them all. I wish her every success and happiness in this new chapter in her life.”
We welcome those clients we’re able to take on, and will be making more announcements over the next few weeks.
