Ivan Mulcahy’s first career was largely spent with media giant Reuters, where he held various senior management roles based in London, New York, Stockholm and Dublin. In 2002, twenty years into that life, he made a radical career change, setting up his London-based literary agency. Moving into the publishing industry was motivated simply by a love of books. The later further surprise arrival into the book world of new disrupting technologies (read Amazon) is interesting to him, though he judges the benefits of information technology to book people (say, actual writers and readers) to be over-hyped. As a literary agent, he hunts for new writing talents both in quality non-fiction and original fiction and is proud to have now helped some well-known and significant authors build their writing careers. He also pursues the true stories of distinctive lives that will interest readers of biography and memoir. See Ivan’s interview with the Irish Times in February 2015.
