My Mission Is… is a podcast series cohosted by Mission’s founder Karina Givargisoff, and singer-songwriter of the U.K. band Texas, Sharleen Spiteri.
In this week’s podcast, Mission sits down with ‘model mogul’ and president of IMG Models Ivan Bart. Bart’s illustrious career has seen placements at talent powerhouses such as Ice, Wilhelmina, and Ford Models, before finally settling at IMG. In his time with the agency, Bart has overseen the management of a fleet of A-List models, including Gigi and Bella Hadid, Joan Smalls, and Hailey Bieber, as well as signing new talent, including the likes of Ashley Graham and Millie Bobby Brown.
In his discussion with Mission, Bart explains the ins and outs of model management, from supporting models through hard times to his favorite city to visit on the job.
