Former motion picture literary agent Mike Fera has joined Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment as a manger.
Fera is the latest WME agent to transition to management. Over the past couple of weeks, WME talent agent and partner Duncan Millership joined Anonymous Content, and TV lit agent and partner Matt Solo joined 3 Arts Entertainment.
Some of the clients Fera worked with at the agency include Rafael Casal, Timo Tjahjanto, Mark Mylod, Jennifer Yuh Nelson, Wes Tooke, Jay Karas, Emily Cohn and Ashley Miller.
Kaplan/Perrone, which marked its 20-year anniversary earlier this year, also hired ICM Partners agent Andrew Murphy in March. Additionally, the company recently promoted manager Josh Goldenberg to partner.
Fera lands the new job as WME is going through layoffs that are expected to cut 20% of the staff.
