Stuart Piper has left Intertalent, the agency he co-founded as Cole Kitchenn 13 years ago.

Piper said he had made the “difficult decision” to step down and “take some time out to spend a bit more time with family”.

He said this would be for six months at least, during which time he will think about what he wants to do next.

Writing on social media, he said: “It is a wrench to leave the agenting team, and a real test of mettle to leave a client list I love as much as family, many who have been with me for all 13 years. But at just 36 years of age, I still have the opportunity to start a new chapter, whatever that might be. I’m not rushing that choice and going to take my time.”

He added: “I shall not be disappearing. I haven’t had an empty diary since 2003 – pauses and stopping has often daunted me in the past, but this one I know is coming at a key time in my life.”

Piper co-founded Cole Kitchenn Personal Management in 2005, before entering into partnership with Jonathan Shalit’s Roar Group in 2010.

It was rebranded Intertalent Rights Group earlier this year.
