WOODLAND HILLS, Calif.— from www.avn.com – Shy Love has accepted an offer from recently acquired partner Mark “Blazing” Schechter to sell her remaining interest in Adult Talent Managers, LA.
Love explained her decision to leave the business she founded in 2006.
“After partnering up with Mark toward the end of last year, and being able to spend more time with my family and also focusing on new business ventures, I have decided that it is time for me to take this opportunity and retire from my active role in managing of ATMLA.
“Mark has really grasped the agency side of the industry extremely well, and I am very confident now that he will take this business that I built and continue to manage it with the high level of success that I did. I walk away in comfort knowing that all the models I have represented over the years and all the production clients will be in very good hands.”
Mark “Blazing” Schechter is an industry veteran with almost 15 years of experience, primarily involved with part ownership of the BlazingBucks affiliate program.
“Owning and managing an agency has been a target of mine for many years,” Blazing said. “I saw an opportunity and the timing was right. I feel I have a lot to bring to this side of the industry, with my vast knowledge of the industry and deep relationships I have garnered over the years that will enable me to succeed in representing the models now and in the future.”
Love established Adult Talent Managers in 2006. In 2010, ATM she merged with September Dawn’s A List Talent to create a single agency with both adult and mainstream branches. In December 2012, she announced the partnership with Schechter.
