Founding partner of Folio Literary Management Paige Wheeler will relaunch her previous company, Creative Media Agency, as an affiliate of Folio, relinquishing her partner role and focusing on client management. Wheeler said in the announcement: “I have had a tremendous amount of fun in starting and growing Folio to become a powerful and important agency in a fast-changing industry. Now, though, I’d like to focus more of my efforts on client management. Relaunching CMA as an affiliate of Folio is the best of both worlds — I get the flexibility I want with the support of Folio behind me.”
