Wise Buddah’s Senior Talent Manager Sam Gregory is leaving the company to start a new agency, and has purchased part of the Wise Buddah Talent roster.
Sam, who has been at Wise Buddah for three years made the offer as part of a strategic review initiated by CEO Mark Goodier when he took back the reins to the company in June. The move coincides with Goodier’s plan to re-focus the business.
Sam said: “I am excited to be setting up my own agency and building upon the on-going successes achieved with the clients who are joining me at Big Red Talent. I’d like to especially thank Mark and everyone else at Wise Buddah for the last three years.”
Mark Goodier added “I am working to simplify the Wise Buddah proposition for its clients and customers as well as the staff who work here and this move fits with my plan. It also works very well for Sam, the talent who have moved to his new agency and the artists we will continue to represent at Wise Buddah in our Voices and Talent agency”
The changes mean Wise Buddah will focus its agency energies on the growing Wise Buddah Voices division, and concentrate its management activity on a small number of radio presenters.
Sam’s new company is called Big Red Talent.
