Alexander is accused of having exposed himself to a male industry executive while the two were driving in Alexander’s car in 2016. The executive was said to have reported the allegations to ICM, which put Alexander on a temporary leave at the time. Sources close to the agency said that although the situation had been formally addressed with Alexander in 2016, it became a PR problem for the agency amid the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct, especially after the allegation was reported by the Times in May.
An ICM Partners spokesman would not elaborate on the reason for Alexander’s departure.
“Steve Alexander is no longer employed at ICM,” the spokesman said. Alexander could not immediately be reached for comment.
