Diving Bell was launched in October 2017 in London, England by founders Kim Butler & Justin Girdler.

“Representation matters, for many reasons, and Diving Bell represents the kind of agency that truly understands this.”

“Kim, Justin and the Diving Bell team are some of the most efficient and creative agents out there. They know their clients inside out and how to form partnerships that will get cut-through in a busy landscape, which is not always the case with talent agents. Not only are they reliable, efficient and true professionals, but they’re also friendly and very easy to work with – they make collaborating together a real joy, and as a result of that the work we’ve done has been some of our best.”
