Industry Moves: William Morris Digital Head Lewis Henderson Leaving

0 Comments

William Morris vet Lewis Henderson is leaving the talent agency after 17 years. Henderson, head of WMA’s digital media group since it was formed in 2006, during a phone call described the parting as amicable and said it was time to move on. No details about what he’ll do next: “I’ve had enough conversations with people that I felt confident.” He’s staying through the end of the month. The agency’s plans for the digital media group weren’t clear. So far, all they’ve issued is a statement from Chairman and CEO Jim Wiatt thanking Henderson: “We wish him the best, and look forward to working with him again in the future.” (Henderson took part in our Digital Media Year in Review last December; the video is embedded after the jump.)

Update: In an e-mail he just sent out, Henderson said the move “was purely driven by my desire to remove my agent hat and pursue a more entrepreneurial role.”
