Former CAA agent Rand Holston has joined Paradigm, the talent agency said today.

Holston begins work immediately in Beverly Hills-based Paradigm's motion picture department. He will also work with the agency's motion picture finance group.

“Rand is an outstanding agent with an impeccable reputation,” said Sam Gores, CEO of Paradigm, in a statement.  “Our philosophies relating to the entertainment business are very compatible and we are all thrilled that he chose Paradigm.”

At CAA, Holston represented directors, producers, screenwriters and authors, including Rob Reiner, Wolfgang Petersen and Stephen King. He also worked on opening CAA's office in Beijing.

“Paradigm has a great reputation and after getting to know Sam and his senior group of agents, it was clear this would be a great fit for me," Holston said in a statement.  

Holston is one of several CAA agents to leave the Century City-based firm in recent weeks; agents Jessica Matthews, Shari Smiley and Mike Nilon have also departed from the agency.
