Kristin Lancino

Global performing arts and cultural management leader IMG Artists is pleased to announce that Kristin Lancino joins the company as Executive Director.   Ms. Lancino will manage the Artist Management divisions for North and South America under the leadership of President and CEO Jerry Inzerillo.  She will be based in IMGA’s New York headquarters.

Ms. Lancino joins IMG Artists from G. Schirmer, Inc., where she has been Vice President since 2007.  At Schirmer, she and her team’s focus was on composer careers.  In addition, the group led the industry in digital access to scores, winning the 2009 ASCAP Arnold Broido Award.  Ms. Lancino previously served as Carnegie Hall’s Director of Artistic Planning.   She has demonstrated extensive expertise with both artistic and educational projects leading her to a consultancy career where she developed programmes for top cultural organizations including the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the 92nd Street Y and IMG Artists’ own Emerson String Quartet.

Ms. Lancino says, “Upon graduating from Oberlin Conservatory I was privileged to intern at the then Hamlen-Landau Management [pre-cursor to IMG Artists] where I first discovered the never ending possibilities of dynamic artist management.  It is with excitement that I complete a certain circle and now join the IMG Artists team under the vibrant direction of Jerry Inzerillo.  I admire how they honor each artist as unique and I am continually impressed by the depth of knowledge and expertise within the staff.”

Mr. Inzerillo adds, “We are delighted to have Kristin lead our Artist Management division as part of our current restructuring of IMG Artists to diversify opportunities for our artists and their futures. Kristin is a uniquely talented and creative leader with a superb reputation and known for her deep commitment to her artists as well as colleagues.”

The Emerson String Quartet says, “We are delighted to hear that Kristin Lancino will join the management team at IMG Artists. We met Kristin in the 1990s, when she was working at Carnegie Hall. She coordinated the first Isaac Stern Chamber Music Workshop in which we participated in 1997. More recently, she gave us invaluable help in setting up a quartet workshop at Stony Brook University. We have been impressed by the tireless support she has provided for contemporary music during her tenure at Schirmer, and are confident that she will bring the same energy and enthusiasm to her new position at IMGA.  Congratulations and welcome, Kristin! We look forward to working together.”
