Michael Camacho Resigns From UTA

Michael Camacho, a partner at UTA and head of the agency’s alternative department, has announced his resignation from the company

Michael Camacho, a partner at United Talent Agency and head of the agency’s alternative department, has resigned from the company, a spokesman for UTA told TheWrap.

UTA's managing director Jay Suresh will  oversee the department, and agents Brett Hansen and Joe LaBracio will run the day-to-day operations for the time being.

Two weeks ago, Camacho’s former client, Scott Einziger, a producer of reality television, dropped a $10 million lawsuit against UTA and Camacho.

In the email to staff members Monday, Camacho said:

“I have decided to resign as a Partner at UTA in order to pursue the next phase of my career. This was a difficult decision. My time at UTA has been incredible, and I am very proud of the department that we have built. I feel certain that I am leaving the department much stronger and more vibrant than when I arrived, and that is very gratifying to me.

"I will always be grateful for the opportunity that UTA gave to me when I joined. I believe that there are few places anywhere that embrace and support people and ideas the way this agency does.

"As I look forward, I am sure of one thing and that is that we will be working together in a new capacity that will be rewarding and exciting for us all.”
