“We’re extremely proud of this group of colleagues and the contributions they are making at UTA during a period of exceptional growth, diversification, and momentum,” stated UTA president David Kramer, announcing this year’s promoted class. “They are part of a tradition of developing and advancing careers that is central to our culture and our commitment to driving success for our clients.”
According to UTA, a majority of those promoted to agent are alums of its agent training program, a continued trend for the agency. Plus, women constituted more than 50% of the promotions, while more than 30% of the class identify as people of color. While the demographic data is similar year-to-year, the number of employees promoted in 2024 surpasses the 65 elevated last year.
News of the promotions comes a day after Variety exclusively announced UTA Venture Studio hired veteran executive Anna Ho Sandig as vice president; while last month, longtime executive Julian Jacobs was promoted to lead the agency’s New York office. To close out 2023, Klutch Sports Group acquired sports agency Rep 1 Baseball as UTA‘s sports partner expanded beyond its stronghold in basketball and football representation.
