Leading global talent and entertainment company UTA announced that nine agents and five executives have been promoted across seven divisions in Los Angeles, New York and London.
Tessie Lammle, James Masters, Daniel McCartney, Ron Perks, Angie Rance, and Chris Visconti are now agents in Music; Lucas Barnes in Television Talent; John McGrath in Independent Film; and Kristen Sena in Speakers. Allyson Chung and Ally Diamond are now executives in the UTA Foundation; Rachel Hall and Caroline Long in UTA Marketing; and Brendan Mulroy in UTA IQ.
UTA also announced that 12 new coordinators have been named across its Los Angeles, New York and London offices in Music, Speakers, Fine Arts, Independent Film, Emerging Platforms, Video Games, Corporate Communications, Digital Talent, and Brand Partnerships.
"We’re incredibly proud of this outstanding group of colleagues. Each of them personifies exceptional performance and commitment to client service. We’re especially pleased that the vast majority of our new agents and executives began their careers at UTA as assistants, which is a reflection of our commitment to developing and fostering the growth of young professionals. As we continue to grow all aspects of our business, they will all play an integral role in driving our future success."
The promotions come within some of UTA’s most rapidly expanding departments. UTA’s Music division represents a global roster of acclaimed artists, from emerging talent to established stars. The agency’s Speakers bureau is a market leader in the space, working with some of the world’s most influential public figures. UTA’s Marketing team has launched high-impact, creative initiatives for corporate brands including Coca-Cola, COVERGIRL, Delta Air Lines, General Motors, LinkedIn, and Lyft, among many others. The UTA Foundation provides support to local and national charitable initiatives by connecting clients to the causes they care about deeply. UTA IQ is the agency’s research, analytics and digital strategy division, providing actionable intelligence to agents, executives and clients across UTA’s practice areas.
The elevations come amid UTA’s significant growth over the past year. This fall, UTA unveiled a new brand identity emphasizing the company’s dedication to uniting ideas, opportunities and talent. Additionally, in the past 18 months alone UTA made a significant investment in powerhouse sports agency, Klutch Sports Group; acquired leading influencer firm, Digital Brand Architects; launched Civic Center Media to provide artists with more creative control and greater financial ownership of content; and secured investments from private equity firms PSP Investments and Investcorp.
