All3Media America has tapped former ICM Partners founder and senior VP Greg Lipstone (pictured) to head the company as CEO, replacing outgoing president Eli Holzman.

As CEO, Lipstone will be charged with overseeing the daily operations for the company and its 11 subsidiaries, including Morocco Junction, Lime Productions and Studio Lambert.

A spokesperson for All3Media America confirmed to realscreen that Holzman “had the opportunity to exit and decided to do so,” agreeing to stay on until a replacement had been found. Following his departure, the exec is to launch a new company. 

Meanwhile, All3Media America – whose parent company was purchased by Discovery Communications and Liberty Global last year – will remain a client of ICM Partners.

Lipstone has represented the company and its affiliates for more than a decade, and has also worked alongside a raft of producers including Original Media and Gurney Productions on such series as Fox’s Hell’s Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares, ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, and CBS’s Undercover Boss.

Previously, Lipstone worked at William Morris Agency for more than 20 years, rising to head its network TV department in 2004. He also serves as an associate member of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts and as a board member for NAPTE and the Hollywood Radio and Television Society.

“Greg’s knowledge of the industry is exceptional and the combination of his relationships, his reputation, his commercial flair and his drive will play a hugely important part in growing All3Media in the U.S.,” said All3Media CEO Jane Turton in a statement.

In a joint statement, the partners of ICM added: “We are incredibly excited for Greg as he transitions into his new role as CEO.  He will always be part of the ICM Partners family, and we look forward to continuing to work with him to further the success of All3Media America.”
