Adele and Mumford & Sons agent Lucy Dickins has announced that she is leaving London-based booking agency ITB to become head of WME’s UK music division. She will officially make the move next month.

“Lucy is a star player and the perfect addition to our team”, says WME’s Global Head Of Music, Marc Geiger. “There’s no one else who possesses Lucy’s combination of pedigree, taste and respect in our industry”.

Noting his new recruit’s family connection to former employer ITB, which is headed up by her father Barry, Geiger went on: “After being in business with her family for so many years, we feel fortunate that she decided to join WME, and we look forward to bringing her perspective to our clients and colleagues”.

Dickins adds: “Growing up in this business, I’ve been lucky to learn from the best, but now is the time for me to take the next step in my career. The opportunity to join WME was hugely exciting, and I’m confident that this relationship can grow into something special”.

As well as Adele and the Mumfords, Dickins represents artists including Laura Marling, James Blake, Mabel, Hot Chip, Bryan Ferry, Jamie T and Jack PeƱate, all of whom are expected to join her in the move to WME. As are two other ITB agents, James Simmons and Chris Payne.
