Endeavor's Coronel launches management firm


Veteran Endeavor talent agent Leanne Coronel has left the agency to launch a management/ production company.

A number of Coronel's clients, including Emmy winner Eric McCormack, "Chuck" star Zachary Levi, Colm Feore, Aidan Gillen ("The Wire"), Jonathan Slavin ("Better Off Ted"), Armie Hammer ("Gossip Girl") and Robert Patrick ("The Unit"), will follow her to the new company, the Coronel Group, which will be based in Westwood. All of the actors will continue to be repped by Endeavor.

Additionally, Coronel has signed chef and cooking-show host Susan Feniger.

"The business is changing so much at this time that I believe my energy and experience will better suit my clients if I can focus solely on their vision of what they want their careers to be," Coronel said. "The majority of my clients have an interest in many aspects of the business, including writing, producing and directing, and now I will have the ability and time to fully contribute to each client's specific needs."

Coronel had been at Endeavor for 121/2 years and was the first hire in the talent department when the agency opened.

Before that, she was with the Susan Smith and J. Michael Bloom agencies. (partialdiff)
