Endeavor has promoted Courtney Braun to general counsel of its client representation group, while Michelle Walter has been upped to chief financial officer of WME.

The executive moves by longtime WME and Endeavor execs, unveiled by Lloyd Braun, president of Endeavor Client Group and WME chairman, will see Courtney Braun oversee all legal matters across WME and Endeavor’s fashion representation business, including IMG Models, Art + Commerce and The Wall Group.

Braun will also retain her other legal responsibilities across Endeavor. Walter will continue to oversee all financial and operational matters for the agency, with an eye on strategic planning.

“Courtney and Michelle have been indispensable members of WME for years, serving as trusted advisers to our clients and colleagues on a range of business matters,” said Lloyd Braun in a statement.

Courtney Braun, who has been with the agency for more than a decade, most recently served as head of legal affairs for the Endeavor Client Group. Walter most recently served as senior vp on Endeavor’s corporate finance team, which she joined after the William Morris Agency and Endeavor merger in 2009.

Both appointments are effective immediately.
