Three of Australia's talent management companies: Morrissey Management, WildCat Personal Management and the Artist & Entertainment Group, have merged to create new entity, Encompass Management..

Morrissey has many actors and a limited number of writers and directors on its books, Wildcat is best known for its representation of cinematographers and other film technicians, and the third company is billed as an investment and development company.

The amalgamation of the clients and staff from Morrissey Management and WildCat Personal Management, and the capital, commercial and legal resources from Artist & Entertainment Group creates the basis of the new company, which will be headquartered in Sydney.

The Encompass board will initially comprise Sue Wild, Mark Morrissey and the Artist & Entertainment Group's Ben Macpherson and Rob Allan. They will establish new premises within the next three months.
