Dan Limerick Promoted To COO Of WME
Dan Limerick has been elevated to Chief Operating Officer of WME, a role which will have him working closely with Endeavor Client Group president and WME Chairman Lloyd Braun and WME President Ari Greenburg.
Limerick has been working at WME since 2016, when he joined as Head of Television Business Affairs. He was most recently Head of Business Affairs for Endeavor Client Group. Before WME he worked at Warner Bros. Television from 2002 to 2016.
“Dan has been a critical thought partner to our agency and clients throughout his time at WME, serving as a steady hand amidst transformational changes in our industry,” Braun said in a statement. “Dan’s character and judgment are emblematic of who we strive to be, and we look forward to him playing a larger role in the growth of WME.”
WME has undergone significant changes in the months since the COVID-19 pandemic shut down the live entertainment industry. Marc Geiger left his role as co-head of music in June and Sara Newkirk Simon has transitioned to a consultant role with parent company Endeavor. Lucy Dickins, Scott Clayton and Kirk Sommer are now the co-heads of music at the agency.
Power agent Brent Smith also recently left WME following complaints of bullying within the company.
WME was forced to reduce staff after the pandemic, and former WME agents Patrick McAuliff and Peter Wiederlight were founding members of the new agency MINT Talent Group.
