In the genes

CAA has signed Dylan Penn, who will star in Flag Day, directed by her father Sean Penn. She will be seen in Nicolas Winding Refn's crime drama series Too Old to Die Young, which premieres June 14 on Amazon. As a model, she has appeared in campaigns for brands including Stuart Weitzman, Ermanno Scervino and Michael Kors. She continues to be managed by Heather Nunn at Anonymous Content.

CAA also has signed CNBC correspondent Leslie Picker, whose investigation of Puerto Rico's debt crisis won a Society for Advanced Business Editing and Writing Award and was a finalist for a 2018 Gerald Loeb Award. She previously covered mergers and acquisitions, initial public offerings, venture capital, private equity, restructuring and shareholder activism for The New York Times and IPOs for Bloomberg News. Picker was previously represented at WME.

Diamond certified

Paradigm has promoted Marty Diamond to head of global music, succeeding the late Chip Hooper, who died in 2016.

Diamond serves on the boards of Paradigm's international partners, London-based Coda Music Agency and X-ray Touring. His roster of top artists includes Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, Janelle Monáe, Sigur Ros, Sara Bareilles, Liam Gallagher, Sia, Lorde, Alessia Cara, Bastille, Snow Patrol, Jess Glynne and Vance Joy.

"I'm so proud of the team we've created here at Paradigm, passionate and artist-centric to the core," Diamond said in a statement. "It's an incredibly hard-working and smart group of people I get to come to work with every day. Paradigm is proof that believing in artists and the art they create and building everything you do around being a tireless advocate for their work, is the best way to grow careers."

Diamond joined Paradigm when the agency acquired the boutique he founded in 1994, Little Big Man Booking, in 2006. He previously had worked at International Talent Group, Arista, PolyGram, Bill Graham Management and The Ritz (the former name of Webster Hall). Diamond also serves on the Samburu Trust board and the Dean's advisory council at the University of Delaware College of Arts & Sciences and is actively involved in advising Global Citizen and the Surfrider Foundation. On Sept. 26 the City Parks Foundation in New York will award him SummerStage Icon.

"Marty's passion, his intelligence and his dedication to building amazing careers for artists has been an inspiration to me and everyone at Paradigm for the last 13 years," Paradigm chairman and CEO Sam Gores said in a statement. "Leadership is not something you are given, it's something you earn, and Marty has unquestionably earned it, along with everyone's respect at Paradigm."
