Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 21, 2008
Steven Himmelfarb today begins work as an agent at The Billions Corporation after three years in that capacity at Paquin Entertainment in Toronto. His roster, which includes Tokyo Police Club, Final Fantasy, Basia Bulat (Canada only) Hayden (Canada only) and Beirut (Canada only) moves with him.
Chicago-headquartered Billions, with existing agents also based in Seattle, WA, Portland, OR and Bloomington, IN, is celebrating its twentieth year of operation. Among its exclusive clients are The Arcade Fire, Death Cab For Cutie, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Sufjan Stevens, Vampire Weekend, Neko Case, Silversun Pickups and Oscar-winning duo The Swell Season.
"It's a very exciting move for me," says Himmelfarb. "Billions is a company I've looked up to since I started in the industry a few years ago. Their reputation, not only with their clients but among other industry professionals, instantly led me to believe this would be an ideal situation for my own artists. They have a remarkable roster that I admire. I hope to add to it as a new member of the team."
Billions founder and president David T. Viecelli offers, "We've known Steven for a while now and have enjoyed our interactions on behalf of the clients for whom we share representation. He's a creative and driven young agent with a thorough knowledge of the Canadian market and we believe he's going to make strong contributions to the services and expertise we offer our clients."
As of today, Himmelfarb can be reached at 312-997-9999 x8247 and via email at himmelfarb(at)billions.com. He will continue to be located in Toronto.
