UTA has promoted over 100 employees across the global talent, sports and entertainment agency.
The new job titles impact employees over 30 departments — including business affairs, motion picture literary, music TV literary and digital talents, among others — and in multiple global offices. The news follows the agency reinstating employees’ full pay after cuts that were made in 2020 amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.
“Amid the unprecedented circumstances surrounding the pandemic, having the ability to promote over 100 colleagues is a testament to the perseverance of our UTA family and the continued evolution and expansion of our company,” UTA co-president David Kramer said in a statement.
The elevations also mark the biggest promotions class ever in the agency’s 30-year history. In October 2020, UTA promoted 35 employees across multiple divisions to agent, executive and associate levels, as well as coordinator.
As part of the latest promotions, close to 60 percent of those getting new job titles identify as women and over 35 percent identify as people of color. And 90 percent of those promoted to agent and nearly 80 percent of those promoted to coordinator started their careers in UTA’s agent training program.
