Rob Weisbach Creative Management announced a relationship with three new senior associates, Erin Cox, David Groff, and Jake Bauman, who are becoming part of the company’s “virtual team.” (They work collaboratively–“operating independently but in collaboration”–though not from the same physical office space.)
Cox will represent authors, offer publicity expertise, and provide publicity and promotion services for outside clients, and work with corporate clients including Conde Nast Digital and the Frankfurt Book Fair. She was most recently book publishing director at the New Yorker. Independent editor Groff will develop a client list and provide editorial guidance, while offering editorial services to outside clients and continuing to work independently with his longtime authors. Bauman, most recently director of development at The Weinstein Company, will represent both authors and screenwriters.
Weisbach says in the announcement, “Each brings to the company distinct expertise–in promotion, editorial, and dramatic development. At the same time, they share several qualities invaluable to the business: a seasoned eye for identifying and positioning talent; a skill for nurturing artists and their work; and a palpable entrepreneurial drive.”
