Joel takes on Endeavor partner role


Veteran agent Brandt Joel has joined Endeavor as a partner in the agency.

Joel, who will work in the talent department, joins the agency after serving 10 years as a motion picture talent agent at CAA where he worked with such clients as James Gandolfini, Penelope Cruz, Gwyneth Paltrow and Renee Zellweger. It is not clear which of his former clients might join him at Endeavor.

Prior to his tenure at CAA, Joel was an agent at UTA.

The agency described Joel, who left CAA Tuesday and is starting immediately at Endeavor, as a "great fit with the Endeavor culture," where he will become the agency's 22nd partner.

Joel's move follows that of another longtime CAA agent, David Styne, who switched agencies to join ICM on Monday. (HR 10/23).
