Talent and literary agent David Unger has joined Jeff Berg’s new agency Resolution and will be based in the Century City offices.

Unger becomes the first talent agent from ICM to move over to chairman and CEO Berg’s new venture and will help structure global growth and foster the next generation of clients. Berg previously served as chairman of ICM.

The new arrival will continue to represent leading film and television actors, directors and writers and will also play a key role in Resolution’s branding and media finance groups. 

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with David for more than 15 years,” said Berg. “He’s a stellar agent, a strategic thinker and a leader. He’s exactly the type of multi-talented executive Resolution needs as we continue to build our company.

“David has a unique understanding of the changing marketplace and will help us capitalise on the growing international market. He represents leadings artists in the US, UK, France, India, China and Russia. I want to see him use these skills and relationships to grow the agency and shape the next generation for Resolution.”

Unger added: “Jeff has been an incredible mentor and this move is a natural next step for me. I’m excited to build Resolution alongside him and join this forward leaning and artist centred agency.”

Unger served as vp and talent agent at ICM since 1997. His clients included Mickey Rourke, Ray Winstone, John Hurt, Steve Coogan, Lindsay Lohan, Naomi Campbell, Gong Li, Anil Kapoor, Emmanuelle Seigner and Roger Avary.
