UTA announces new partners


Leading global talent and entertainment company United Talent Agency (UTA) today announced its largest partner class in its 30-year history – with 19 agents and executives across 14 divisions elevated into the partnership. The company’s last partner class was announced in January 2019.

“These are leaders across our business making substantial contributions to the growth, evolution and resilience of our company,” said UTA Co-President David Kramer. “In their talent and leadership, we see the expanding reach of UTA’s work on behalf of world-class creators and cultural voices. These individuals are influential leaders not just at UTA but in their fields, and our company as a whole will benefit from having their unique and diverse expertise, innovation, and perspectives at the partner table.”

The new partners include agents from UTA’s motion pictures and TV talent and lit groups, podcasting and emerging platforms, news and broadcasting, digital talent, endorsements and voiceover, fine arts, culture and leadership, and alternative TV. The group also includes senior corporate executives—in Legal, Corporate Communications and Finance. With the recent appointment of Samantha Kirby Yoh as Co-Head of UTA Music, UTA has named a total of 22 new partners in 2020—more than half of whom are women and people of color.
